Sugar Maple – Acer saccharum ‘Commemoration’

Sugar Maple

A  native tree to the Hudson Valley region, the Sugar Maple grows in un-compacted well draining native soils.  The sugar maple can be tapped to harvest the tree's sap in late winter / early spring for production of maple syrup. Once you have collected a pail you can boil down the sap to make syrup.  The sugar maple has a beautiful autumn color and looks amazing on the crest of a hill by itself in the morning sun.
