Red Maple (Acer Rubrum)

Red Maple is not one of the species covered in our current set of publications, as we concentrated our focus on rarer tree species. Therefore, we do not have all of the information such as propagation methods listed as we do for some other species you’ll see on the site. In a future publication, this species may be covered in more detail. Don’t forget, we still have Red Maple for sale in our Nursery !
Red Maple is common throughout the province. It does attain a height of 70 feet and a diameter of 2 to 3 feet on deep moist soils rarely, but more commonly it is much smaller. The trunk is long and straight in the forest, short and commonly divided into secondary stems in the open. The main branches are ascending, the smaller branches and twigs spread out and tend to turn up slightly at the ends. It is mostly found on rich moist lands and along the borders of streams and swamps. It is found in pure stands but more often in mixtures of other hardwoods and softwoods.
