A medium sized deciduous tree. The green leaves are opposite and palmately lobed, turning a vibrant orange-red color in the fall. Early spring brings red, showy flowers. Red winged seeds (samaras) become present in the Summer. It is a host species for a variety of moth larvae: Baltimore Bomolocha, Orange-humped Mapleworm, Maple Looper, and more. Red Maples are also beneficial to other wildlife such as birds, deer, and squirrels for browse and shelter.
