Sugar Maple

Acer saccharum


The stem of a dried Sugar Maple leaf got stuck and when the wind blew it around it created a perfect circle in the snow. The Sugar Maple is a deciduous tree. Often grows to 100 feet. The leaves are 3-5 inches long. Simple; opposite. Shades of yellow, orange and red in the fall.




The Indians taught the pioneers to make syrup and sugar from this tree's sweet sap. It is that time of the year for Vermonters to make that yummy syrup. We need chilly nights and warm days.
