Silver Maple (1-2 ft.)
This fast growing native can grow to around 80 ft. tall and can grow up to 2 feet per year. This maple is often multi-stemmed, with wide, spreading branches. It does excellent in moist soils and full sun to partial shade. Squirrels eat the buds in spring and birds will use the tree for nesting. Silver maples are perfect for treeless yards where you want quick shade.
