Gardeners' Notes:

Positive toughgardengeek On Jun 9, 2011, toughgardengeek from Bethpage, NY wrote:

The slightly drooping, deeply divided lobes, give the tree a graceful lacy look in summer and lovely orange color in fall. Mine has a much more narrow form than more typical oval to rounded of species, almost 25 feet tall, but only 5 feet in width. I often have seen the habit described as more upright to vase shaped. But, Sugar maples do tend to be variable in their habit, so time will tell. Once establish, it shot up quickly, but now averaging about a foot per growing season.
