Black Sugar Maple

Similar in many ways to sugar maple, the black maple is perhaps most noted for its superior heat and drought tolerance. This enables it to be used successfully in climates with hot, dry summers where it will withstand stressful situations better than sugar maple. This is a beautiful specimen shade tree for large areas, with colorful fall foliage that varies from yellow to red.

  • Spread: 50 - 50'
