Sugar Maple Seedlings have dark green leaves with five points. These leaves turn bright red, yellow and orange during the fall. During the summer, the thick, dense leaves and width of the tree (about 40 ft. wide) provides a beautiful shaded area to yards and gardens. The Sugar Maple can reach heights of 60-80 ft. When mature.
