Shantung Maple

Acer truncatum

This small tree is an excellent front yard tree only growing to around 20 to 25 feet, so it can be used under utility lines.  It has deeply cut, glossy green foliage that turns yellow to orange in the fall and occasionally has red and purple mixed in.  It is drought tolerant but intolerant of waterlogged soils.  It doesn’t have any serious insect or disease problems.

20-25′ Tall 15-20′ Wide
