Red Maple

Acer rubrum


A row of red maples right up our main street. One of the most common and widspread trees across the Eastern and Central US. The US Forest Service recognizes it as the most abundant tree in North America. One of these reasons could be its popularity as being planted as an ornamental tree. Red maples are very important to deciduous forest cycles, and removing them from a forest recovering from disturbance could alter that forests diversity for centuries.


These are everywhere. You can't escape them.
