Red maple reaches a mature size of 90 feet in height and up to 2.5 feet in diameter. It is grows on a wide variety of sites from dry upland ridges to bottomland swamps. The light cream colored wood is used for furniture, turnery, woodenware, and paper pulp. The buds are a primary source of food for gray squirrels during the late winter and early spring. Birds and mice eat the seeds and deer will often browse the young sprouts. Red maple is also a popular shade and ornamental tree, with brilliant fall color.
