Maple (Red) - Acer Rubrum

Maple trees come in a number of different varieties, but excepting the Japanese maple, the most cultivated variety is the red maple.

A red maple tree 'acer rubrum' is one of the best additions to any yard provided you have space for a shade tree. These trees are one of the best shade trees and are also incredibly hardy - meaning even if you struggle to grow things, they are tough.

Red maples are often called swamp maples because they can grow in conditions that are wet and don't require consistently well-drained soil. We still recommend that you mulch your tree each year, get a soil test for fertilizer, and add organic material, but when you have a location that is too wet for other large trees a red maple is an excellent choice. All cultivars of red maple share this characteristic tolerance to wet conditions.
