MAPLE TREES: Maple trees are large, deciduous trees that grow throughout the world. In the United States, they are more common in the northern states. Many people know maple trees for their spectacular fall color.
Chinese Paperbark Maple: With a dignified, rounded form, dramatically flaking mahogany colored bark that peels to expose the cinnamon hues beneath, and rich green trifoliate leaves that blaze to a brilliant red each fall, China's Paper-bark Maple is a splendid specimen for just about any place in your garden. This maple requires well-drained soil and will tolerate sun, shade and wind, but never drought.
