Quick Overview:

‘Green Mountain’ is a popular and well-established sugar maple cultivar that typically grows 40-60′ tall in cultivation. It has a broad pyramidal form. It is noted for its (1) rapid growth rate, (2) straight central trunk branching to a narrow ovate head, (3) thickened and strong crotches, (4) thick deep green foliage and (5) resistance to leaf hoppers and leaf scorch. Deeply cut, leathery, dark green leaves (each to 6″ long and 8″ wide) turn excellent shades of orange and scarlet in fall. Pale yellowish-green flowers appear in clusters in spring before the leaves emerge. Flowers give way to clusters of paired samaras.

Description

Excellent specimen tree for the lawn or parks with beautiful fall color. May be used as a street tree as long as it can be located on a street and in a location where road salt, soil compaction and pollution will not be significant problems.
