Acer saccharum / Sugar Maple
A sweet, sweet tree, Acer saccharum is the sugar maple, the official state tree of New York! The sugar maple is the tree that produces maple syrup, by boiling down the sap during late winter-early spring when temperatures alternate between freezing and thawing. Sugar maple trees can reach 50-100 feet tall with a spread of 30-60 feet. Sugar maple shines in the fall. Their autumn foliage ranges from stunning yellow to deep orange in color. It does well in a variety of conditions, from full sun to shade, and well-draining soil.
