Sugar Maple

  • Sugar Maple (Acer saccharum)

    Family:  Sapindaceae

    Sugar maples are one of the most common and widespread trees in eastern North America, and they are one of the most abundant trees in the forested areas of Ohio.  They are also widely planted as ornamentals in residential areas because of their tolerance to shade, spreading growth form, and brilliantly colored leaves in the fall.  

    Mature trees range from 70 to 90 feet in height and 2 to 3 feet in diameter.
