The Red Maple Live Stakes, Acer Rubrum Is a Popular Landscape Choice
The red maple tree, formally called Acer rubrum, gets the common name from its red flowers, red fruit, red twigs its brilliant red foliage. The red maple tree is a popular landscape choice because it is valuable either in the home or commercial landscape aside from the plant's fall color. A red maple live stake will grow into a versatile tree that provides wildlife habitat, shade, is pest and disease resistant, clean the air, and serve as windbreaks.
Red maple is a native tree to eastern American and perhaps, the most abundant tree in deciduous forest. In the northern parts of their range, red maples are found in wet bottomlands or moist wood, earning them the nickname "swamp maple." The majestic trees can tolerate most soil conditions and temperatures. Red maples usually do well in sunny or shady spots or dry or wet soil, or even in high or low elevation, thus, making them the best choice for a low-maintenance addition to the yard. Their roots adapt in differing soil types, yet red maples grow better in some conditions than others. If you plant the tree in wet soil, it produces a short taproot. However, when red maples grow in dry sites, a longer taproot and shorter lateral roots will develop.
Red Maple, Acer Rubrum Creates a Beautiful Shade in All Seasons
The plant's red color plays a large part in the tree's ornamental display in other seasons. The color is not only evident in fall but also during spring and winter. Its red flower buds form in winter and turning into showy red flowers before the tree leaves out. The new twigs and leaf stems are also red; however, a reddish-colored fruit will take its place when the flowers fade.
Red maple trees grow 40 to 70 feet tall with a spread of 30 to 50 feet; however, the size varies depending on the location and cultivars. In some parts of the US, red maples tend to be shorter with a shallow root system. Some of the inconveniences associated with growing red maple trees are thick and strong roots that grow very near or above the soil's surface. They may not be as destructive or invasive as other maple trees; however, they might make lawn maintenance a challenging chore. It is suggested not to plant red maple live stakes near the driveways or on sidewalks. But the beautiful shade it will create makes the area cool and making your yard more enjoyable to watch.
