Description Recipes
 
● Silver maple trees are fast-growing shade trees that can grow in the heat and tolerate the cold, being suitable for USDA zones 3 through 9. The mature height is 50 to 80 feet and they prefer being planted in full sun but can tolerate shade as well. The soil conditions are nothing to worry about as silver maples are adaptable to many different soil conditions; they are natively found near rivers and streams. The sap of the silver maple can also be harvested to make your own maple syrup. To do so, harvest the sap from the trunk when the sap starts moving from the roots to the canopy in late winter–early spring. Harvest a silver maple tree that is at least ten inches in diameter; drill up three holes at one foot up, and collect the rich sugary sap. Boil it down to make your syrup when the grocery stores are no more.
