Red Canadian Maple Sapling Plants

Red Maple, Acer rubrum, is a large, upright tree with red flowers, red-orange autumn leaves and pink seeds. It is a great screening tree, suitable for large gardens and parks. Suitable for most soils.
Red Maple isn't really suitable for a hedge; use field maple instead.
Red Maple trees can reach 30 metres high.
The plants on this page are young saplings, ideal for large scale planting or in woodland projects. You can also buy larger Red Maple trees here.

Red Maple Sapling plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).
All our bareroot plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

General description of Red Maple plants:

This big tree has pretty little red and orange flowers on the bare branches in early spring, before the leaves burst. The autumn leaf colour is a bright, mottled red and orange and the winged seeds also have pink membranes. The tree has an upright habit, with a canopy about half as wide as it is tall, up to 20 metres across.

History & uses of Acer rubrum:

This tree was imported to Europe in the 1650's from North America, where is known as Swamp Maple or Soft Maple. It likes moist ground, but is isn't really suitable for a proper bog.
