Red Maple

Hamilton Township, New Jersey 08690, United States

Created By: Unity College


Red Maple (Acer rubrum) is a medium sized tree. It lives in many places across the US, encompassing a wide range of habitats. It is often planted as an ornamental. Many parts of the tree are red or have a reddish tinge, including the seeds, young leaves and twigs. Fall leaves of many individuals, including this tree, are often a striking red color. This tree is native.

This tree, and several others, are included along the trail at Spring Lake. If the lake is on your left, this tree will be on your right. It was planted years ago in a small berm along the trail, and can be spotted directly from the trail. This tree was included in the tour, because it is very prevalent in the area, and this individual bears striking red colors in fall, making it easy to spot from all the way across the lake.
