Silver Maple Tree 

Silver Maple Tree or Acer Saccharinum is one of the most commonly spotted deciduous native trees in the United States, probably thanks to its ability to grow in almost every climate. It will thrive in the full sun or filtered sunshine in USDA plant hardiness zones 3 through 9. 

Besides its easy-going and adaptable nature, this tree has a tall and elegant shape and beautiful silvery green foliage that creates ample shade in the summer. Some cultivate large groves of this tree to harvest its sap, which you call maple syrup. 

It is also one of the fastest-growing hardwood trees, adding as much as six feet of new growth yearly. The full-grown height is generally 80' with a maximum of around 100.' The crown's width will be as wide as 60.' 

You might better recognize this tree by its alternative names: river maple, silver leaf maple, water maple, swamp maple, hard maple, white maple, northern sugar maple, or sugar maple. Each refers to the same species, but it is worth noting while researching this species. 

Silver Maple (Acer Saccharinum)Best Growing Conditions

Although it is not particular about soil quality and will even grow in heavy, wet clay, this tree likes its roots to dry out every so often. Well-drained soil is a must. On the other hand, it is drought-tolerant and can withstand short spells without rainfall.  

It also likes a lot of woody material. Consider adding amendments like shredded leaves, mulch, or peat moss, much as it would experience in a native forest. If you provide these two to three times yearly, your tree will receive all the nutrition it needs without further assistance.
