Sugar Maple

Acer saccharum

With sensational autumn foliage, the large lobed leaves of Sugar Maple turn spectacular shades of gold and copper. It’s the primary source of ‘true’ maple syrup. Starches stored within the trunk over winter are converted to the highly prized sugary syrup, which is harvested in spring using a tap or spout inserted directly into the trunk. Its timber is also preferred in the manufacture of violins, skateboards and pool cues! Medium growth rate.
