Sugar Maple – An Excellent Source of Maple Syrup

Why Sugar Maple (Acer Saccharum)?

Sugar maple, scientifically known as acer saccharum, is a species of flowering plant in the lychee and soapberry family Sapindaceae. Its natural habitat is found in the hardwood woods of the eastern United States and eastern Canada, known chiefly for its source of maple syrup and the vibrant autumn foliage. This tree is excellent for creating a focal point and ornamental interest in the commercial and residential landscape, providing exciting colors, textures, and, of course, shade.


Maple sugar, maple syrup, and hardwood lumber (that may be used for the production of furniture, flooring, and musical instruments) are all essential commercial products from this tree.


Its natural habitat is found in the hardwood woods of the eastern United States and eastern Canada. Surprisingly, the maple leaf is also the Canadian national symbol, specifically the sugar maple leaf.


These maples have biological components in their leaves, bark, and sap that have the potential to reduce inflammation, which is the primary driver of many different illnesses and diseases.

Pollination Information

Pollination of Sugar Maple Tree (2-3 Foot) (Acer saccharum):

Sugar Maple is a monoecious tree, meaning it has both male and female flowers on the same tree. The flowers are wind-pollinated and do not attract many pollinators. The winged samaras, commonly known as "helicopter seeds," are produced in spring and disperse by the wind to colonize new areas. Sugar Maple's widespread and prolific seed production contributes significantly to forest regeneration and biodiversity.



It is generally recommended to wait to fertilize a bare root plant until it has been established in the ground and is actively growing. This can vary depending on the type of plant and the growing conditions, but it is generally best to wait at least a few weeks to a few months after planting.

During the first year, you should focus on providing the plant with the right amount of water, sunlight and soil to help it become established. Once the plant has become established and is actively growing, you can begin to fertilize it.

You can use a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer or one that is specifically formulated for the type of plant you have. Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and apply it at the recommended rate.

It is also important to note that over-fertilizing can be harmful to plants, so it's always best to error on the side of caution and start with a lower amount of fertilizer and increase as needed.
