Acer saccharinum Trees

The Silver Maple, is a big, round headed tree with a fairly short trunk that branches into a broad, spreading crown. Suitable for wet sites. This is a beautiful tree.  It has delicate five lobed leaves, more deeply cut than most maples, which are green on top with a silver-grey underside. These look great when the wind ripples through the tree. The autumn colour can change quite a bit, depending on what soil your trees are growing on, but a charming blend of oranges and yellows is most common. Like all maples, it has winged seeds that feed mammals and birds. Silver Maple trees can reach a height of about 30 metres. Standard trees are the largest size that we deliver; you can also buy younger Silver Maple saplings here and you can also browse our other garden trees

All the plants in the ornamental trees section are graded as standards, which means that they are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
Standard trees are 2 - 3.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive; they are the most mature trees that you can buy from us. We cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.

History & uses of Acer saccharinum

This tree was brought to Britain by Sir Charles Wagner in 1725 and Linnaeus, the father of taxonomy, catalogued it in 1753.


Bareroot planting is best done between October and April
