Broad, textured leaves of green tops and silver bottoms, combined with the tree’s brilliant fall foliage display, also make it a popular choice for planting in home landscapes. The deciduous nature of the large tree blocks hot summer while allowing the warm rays of winter sun to permeate the home landscape, which helps lower home energy usage and costs.

Silver maples produce tiny greenish-yellow flowers in the early spring, quickly eclipsed by newly sprouting leaves. The fall foliage color keeps in line with its spring floral display and turns a brilliant yellow in autumn. Silver maples produce solid and thick limbs which lend themselves well to children’s swings and treehouses.
