Sugar Maples grow at a slow to medium rate of 1-2’ per year, reaching a maximum height of 60-75’. They grow best in full or partial sunlight paired with well-drained, acidic to slightly alkaline soils. Squirrels feed on the seeds, buds, twigs and leaves. The most common use of sugar maples trees is to tap them for maple syrup production. They also present a variety of beautiful fall colors, and would be a great shade tree to add to your landscape.
