(Acer saccharinum) The silver maple gets its name from the silvery-white undersides to its green leaves. The roots are shallow and fibrous, making it easy to transplant. Closely related to the red maple and able to hybridize, silver maple can quickly resprout and if not pruned will often grow with multiple trunks. Often used as an ornamental tree due to its rapid growth, makes a good shade tree. Many mammals and birds will eat the seeds. The buds are a primary food source for squirrels during the spring. Also provides nesting sites for ducks and other birds. Height: 60-90 feet. Zones: 3-9.
