Maple trees are very popular in our area. They offer ample amounts of shade and they also burst with a beautiful display of color in the fall. You may have noticed them around town sporting red, orange, and yellow leaves. There are 128 species of maple trees that vary in size. These trees can live up to 300 years or more! They do have a shallow root system, so it’s best not to plant them near your house or sidewalks because they’ll cause issues later on. We love a maple!
