Little Red Maple

First to flower, first to turn

Red Maple (Acer Rubrum)

The Red Maple (Acer Rubrum) is tolerant of diverse conditions, making it a perfect choice for this  spot on the short of Beebe Lake.

Maple Syrup

Even though it is not a “Sugar Maple, early spring, the sap can be boiled down to syrup.

Turning Tree

The first to flower in spring and the first to turn in autumn.

From the Top Down

This maple turns from the top down and is already bare for most top branches.

  1. Oh, I love this time of year, Michael.
    Naturally, in the southern hemisphere spring has just begun – my second favourite season.
    What a surprise regarding the possibility of the sap boiling down to maple syrup in the early spring. Yum! I know I’d definitely try it if I could.
