To be matter-of-fact about the world is to blunder into fantasy - and dull fantasy at that, as the real world is strange and wonderful.
Robert A. Heinlein

Sugar Maple in Willow

This sugar maple has been growing underneath a poplar overstory now for several years. All the poplar have dropped their leaves. The willows in the background are getting ready to drop theirs. One of my dreams is to be able to provide sugar maple seedlings in bulk for rejuvenating poplar bush. Right now the trees are too expensive. Seed trees for prairie hardy trees aren't common.

Maples

A tree for all reasons

This is a diverse family, but they have a lot in common:

Size varies from Amur maple which can be easily used as a hedge shrub to Sugar maple which can reach heights of 70 feet, and similar widths.

We have split the maples into the following sections:

Utility maples These are trees that can be gotten as seedlings in quantity at low prices. No outstanding color. Good for shelterbelts, firewood, poplar bush rejuvenation. Manitoba Maple, Silver Maple, and Amur Maple go here.

Ornamental Maples These usually come in as 7-9 foot trees. Many have good fall colour, or some other attribute that makes them stand out. You will find Lord Selkirk Sugar Maple Autumn Spire Red Maple and Hot Wings Tatarian Maple

Special Order Maples Alas I cannot have 20 of everything in stock. This is a list of what I can get, but plan ahead. Last year they were running out in September.
