The tree whose leaf is synonymous with Canada
The maple tree provides a gorgeous view in the autumn as their leaves turn vibrant shades of red. Whether Japanese, Sugar, Ash or any variant of Maple, these trees are a popular choice for landscaping residential and public outdoor spaces. A large maple tree is not only a handsome specimen to anchor an entire landscape but can provide cooling shade for people and wildlife alike. Maples are at risk of being diseased by Bacterial Blight or attacked by pests such as the Boxelder Bug and Tent Caterpillars. Spraying for these threats to the maple and having the tree pruned regularly can minimize the risk of these occurring.
