Description
Autumn scenery - Sugar Maple foliage.

Acer saccharum (Sugar Maple) is a species of maple native to the hardwood forests of northeastern North America. Autumn color change.It is a deciduous tree normally reaching heights of 75-150 feet. The fall color is often spectacular, ranging from bright yellow through orange to fluorescent red-orange. Sugar maples also have a tendency to color unevenly in fall. In some trees, all colors above can be seen at the same time. There is also a tendency, as there is also with Red Maples (A. rubrum) to see a certain part of a mature tree change color weeks ahead of or behind the remainder of the tree.

The Sugar Maple is an immensely important species to the ecology of many forests in North America. Pure stands are common, and it is a major component of many forest types. The Sugar Maple is one of the most important Canadian trees, being (with Black Maple) the major source of sap for making maple syrup; Sugar Maple being regarded as slightly better. Many maples can be used as a sap source for maple syrup, but none of the others are as good as these two.
