Silver maple is a fast growing large open shade tree that is native to eastern North America. It has an oval to rounded canopy and narrow branch crotches. Its medium green leaves have silver undersides and may change to yellow or yellow-brown in fall.
This tree prefers full sun to partial shade. Though adaptable to a wide variety of soils, silver maple tends to be weak wooded and may be subject to damage during storms. Silver maple is widely used as a shade tree in open lawns or parks.
