About the Silver Maple Tree

The Silver Maple is one of the fastest-growing native maple trees. This is a lovely shade tree with ornamental features. The top of the leaves are green, with silver undersides that shimmer with the wind. In autumn, you will be greeted with a lovely display of gold.

This large landscape tree is easy to grow, as it tolerates a wide variety of soil – even in wet areas. Naturally found growing along riverbanks, this American classic is an excellent choice to add shade and interest to your backyard.

Silver Maple trees have visual appeal, while also providing shade. The sap is not ideal for making syrup, due to its low sugar content, but this large tree can be utilized for its timber.

Prized for transplanting well, the Silver Maple also matures quickly. Plant in full sun and these trees will rapidly grow to a height of about 50-70' - growing about 3-7' per year!

Due to the fast-growing nature of these trees, the limbs are brittle and can be damaged by storms, leaving behind debris.
