Extremely popular native shade and sugar producing tree across the Eastern USA. Acer saccharum or sugar maple grows very fast and dense to make great privacy cover in summer, wildlife cover and is valuable for reforestation. The extremely early male blooms make an EXCELLENT pollen source for honeybees. In KY they begin blooming in late February-early March, right about when bees become active again. These easy to grow seedlings grow fast and strong and will rapidly reach 40-50 feet tall. Long-lived. Pest and disease free in most situations. Once it’s established and older (at least about 10-15 years old), they can be TAPPED to make maple syrup. The sugar maple WATER (before it’s cooked down into syrup) is also tasty and a real health food. Best in zones 4-6.
Uses: Excellent shade tree, sugar producer, bee-tree (pollen), reforestation, landscaping, timber, firewood.
