Maple - Sugar #5 Pot

Sugar maple is the most common maple in the eastern United States and is a hard-wooded tree with a moderate to slow growth rate. The tree will be 60 to 80 feet tall at maturity in landscape plantings. The dense, highly branched crown creates dense shade and will prevent good lawn growth.  Growing in full sun or shade, sugar maple will tolerate a wide variety of soil types (except compacted soil) but is not salt-tolerant. Established trees look better when given some irrigation during dry weather, particularly in the South. It is more drought-tolerant in open areas where the roots can proliferate into a large soil space. Sugar maples are not recommended for the Dallas area, in many cases due to alkaline soils. Sensitivity to compaction, heat, drought, and road salt limit usage of sugar maple for urban street plantings, but it is still recommended for parks and other areas away from roads where soil is loose and well-drained.
