About Red Maple

Sometimes called Scarlet Maple, Shoepeg Maple, and even Swamp Maple, this species is native to the low, wet areas of eastern North America. Red Maple (Acer rubrum) is an abundant, adaptable species, widely planted as a shade tree. Red twigs, branchlets, and buds give Red Maple its name, as does the brilliant scarlet color of the tree's fall foliage. Leaves have 3 to 5 lobes and are 2 to 4 inches across, shiny on top and pale below.

A moderately fast grower, usually 60 to 100 feet tall (though specimens up to 180 feet-tall exist), Red Maple boasts a large, spreading canopy and showy flowers, and is often among the first trees to color-up in fall, especially in frosty areas. This is a beautiful, seasonally entertaining tree that is highly soil-tolerant and capable of thriving in many different settings.


About Jonsteen's Seedlings

All of our trees are seed-grown without poison or pesticides at our nursery on California's Redwood Coast, which is inspected monthly and licensed by the California Department of Agriculture. Trees can provide a natural barrier against high winds, temperatures, noise pollution and soil erosion, all while benefiting local air quality, wildlife and property values — a Jonsteen seedling will only grow in value and beauty!


About Jonsteen's 100% Guarantee

All of our trees are guaranteed to arrive healthy and in good condition. If your tree perishes despite your honest efforts, we will be happy to replace it with a small-sized seedling for just the cost of shipping/handling (typically under $5). You can learn more about our guarantee and tree replacement policy here.

Seedling Size Chart: Small

Due to the dynamic nature of actively growing trees, as well as the tremendous variation between species’ growth rates, we rely on the cubic volume of a seedling’s root mass to determine its “size” (Small / Medium / Large / XL). Within each size there is minor variance — the dimensions provided here represent the category minimum. If exact measurements are essential, please contact us about current stock.
