Growing best in deep, fertile, well-drained soils where moisture is plentiful, this beautiful tree reaches heights of 24 to 30 m (80-100 ft) and diameters of 60 to 90 cm (24-35 in). As early as 1684, there were reports of original peoples tapping this tree for its rich sap. Today, Sugar Maple is the primary source of Canadian maple syrup and maple sugar.
Sugar Maple is also an important tree for wildlife, providing beaver, moose and deer with winter browse, while grouse, birds and squirrels eat the seeds. In the fall the yellow to brilliant orange and scarlet leaves are one of Canada's most beautiful forest scenes.
