Colorful Shade Summer Red Maple TreeGreat Curb AppealThree Seasons of InterestWonderful Shade Tree for Smaller YardsRed Leaves in SpringIncredible Autumn LeavesDeer ResistantIf you have a small yard, choosing the right shade tree can be a big deal. That's especially true if you need shade quickly. While there are many options you could choose, we highly recommend Summer Red Maple Tree (Acer rubrum 'HOSR'). It's a wonderful choice.With a dense but narrow canopy, it provides cool summer shade. It's also a tree that is fast growing but won't take over your whole landscape in terms of size.You'll love the skinny growth habit of this stunning tree. Summer Red is one of the best compact Red Maple trees.This pretty tree also gives you colorful foliage to enjoy in spring, summer and fall. Springtime leaves emerge burgundy red and give you a welcome visual treat after a long winter.Next, the hard-working summer shade leaves perform a color change into dark, purplish green. They'll protect you and your family and friends from the hot summer sun.Then in autumn, once the nights start getting chilly, the younger leaves turn beautiful orange or purple, while the older leaves turn yellow. Overall, Summer Red Maple delivers a spectacular fall color display.Disease resistant and strong, the "right-sized" Summer Red Maple is easy to plant, and even easier to care for. Once established, you'll be impressed how quickly they grow to provide shade to your family.Start your legacy today!

You'll gain relief from the summer heat and even cut energy costs.But, don't worry. Because this deciduous tree loses its leaves in winter, you'll still gain the warmth from the winter sun.There are many ways to use this incredible tree.
