red maple - Acer rubrum
Common Name: red maple
Hardiness Zone: 3 to 9
Height: 40 to 70 ft
Width: 30 to 50 ft
Description: The red maple can readily be found in the Minnesota urban landscape. This tree has beautiful red fall foliage and is often over-planted due to this. Still, it is a good performer in the urban setting and is more preferable than Norway, Freeman, or silver maples. It is widely distributed throughout the forests of the eastern United States and can tolerate wet soil.
