The Story

One of the abundant and popular hardwoods in the Eastern U.S. forest is Acer saccharum, the sugar maple. A deciduous tree, sugar maple, starts the spring and summer with green leaves that soon turn to the notable yellow and orange hues that are the sign of autumn arriving. Slow growers that are long-lived, most sugar maples cannot be tapped to harvest sap until after reaching 30+ years old. Sugar maples are also known to make excellent shade trees that will be around for generations to enjoy.
