Sugar Maple

For color punch and stalwart form, the Sugar Maple reigns as king in the Maple family. (See the Canadian flag)
Our Arkansas variety may lack the height or punch of those that we wee in New England Calendars, but really spice a hill side mixed in Oak and evergreen.
Sugar Maples showcase a distinct Autumnal undress. The top branches bare first, leaving an ever diminishing ball at the base.
