16 Sugar Maple ‘Green Mountain’

(Acer saccharum ‘Green Mountain’ )

The Green Mountain sugar maple has all of the sugar maple’s positive characteristics (like strong limbs and gorgeous fall color) but the seeds are inconspicuous for less mess. That no-fuss characteristic makes the Green Mountain sugar maple a good choice for wide lawns, screens, and shade and as a specimen tree. It’s also a good, durable street tree, and the leathery leaves are heat- and drought- resistant.
