Help with maple selection
Hi all, I am looking to replace a dead and removed Norway Maple with a native maple tree. There are so many choices, and the more I read, the more undecided I am. My local nursery suggested a Autumn Fest or Commemoration Sugar Maple. They also mentioned a 'Red Sunset' maple. If this will help, here is my setting/goals.
1. native tree
2. near street(parking side) - 6'x12' grassy lawn.
3. native sugar maple leaves and fall color.
4. Will start in the 12' tall range.
5. strong branches
6. not really used as shade, so just for beauty. It will shade between 6pm and dusk.
I'd appreciate any suggestions or concerns I need to consider.
