Acer saccharinum
Silver Maple
Silver Maple, although often not available from nurseries today due to its several liabilities, is appropriately placed in open areas where rapid growth with minimal maintenance is desired. In this scenario, potential damage from storm-ripped limbs is minimized, surface roots are reduced due to less soil compaction, and fallen leaves can be shredded or vacuumed by large mowers.
