Acer Saccharum: Sugar Maple
The Sugar maple is native to areas with cooler climates and requires a hard freeze each winter for proper dormancy; specifically Canada and the Northeast/Central US. Generally growing to heights of 80-115 ft, this deciduous tree is famously known for its sweet maple syrup. Sugar maples are deeper-rooted than most maples and engage in hydraulic lift, drawing water from lower soil layers and exuding that water into upper, drier soil layers. This not only benefits the tree itself, but also many other plants growing around it.
