Acer saccharum (Sugar Maple)
Acer saccharum (Sugar Maple) is another maple known for its excellent fall color. When fully grown it provides a dense shade perfect for patios and homes. However, this shade can be too dense sometimes even for the most shade-tolerant plants including turfgrass. Full-grown Sugar Maples are famously known for their ability to produce sugary sap, from which maple syrup is created. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm..........
