Sugar Maple trees are loved for the spectacular fall colors of yellow, orange, and red.
These trees are often used to accent streets, parks, and lawns (however, they must be kept away from road salt).
The Sugar Maple attracts many different wildlife including whitetail deer, moose, and snowshoe hares. With that, many squirrels value its seeds, twigs, and buds as food.
History & Lore
Tea made from the inner bark of the Sugar Maple was once used to alleviate coughs and diarrhea. This occured in 1663 when Anglo-Irish natural philosopher and theological writer, Robert Boyle, told Europeans about the discovery.
