Fast shade, but ..........
A real fast grower and useful in the right spots. But beware .... Silver Maple has shallow roots that often are on the surface and will heave and crack sidewalks and driveways that are nearby. The limbs are also quite weak and have a tendency to break easily in areas with heavy, wet snow.

Came well protected and healthy. I was hoping it would be growing a little faster but it is growing and like I said looking healthy.
This is right after planting it. I received it maybe a week prior to planting. Grown about a foot

Silver maple
I planted 1 of these next to my autumn blaze maple, as they had extremely similar growth. The tree was packaged beautifully, but the tree only gave me yellow fall color unlike the photo. So this gave ugly contrast next to the red autumn blaze I had in the fall.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Silver Maple Tree

Silver Maple Tree Planting Diretions



The Silver Maple can be planted in any soil condition, though it naturally grows in soggy bottomlands. It can tolerate full sun or partial shade. Plant in a hole twice as wide, though just as deep as the root ball. Mulch around the canopy, but not near the trunk, will help the tree maintain moisture. Plant away from power lines, structures, sidewalks and sewer lines.


Watering: This tree can tolerate wet or dry conditions. Be sure to water the tree weekly in its young life to ensure proper growth. If you live in an area with frequent droughts, you may need to water weekly throughout its life.


Pruning: If you live in an area with windy conditions, hurricanes, ice storms, or salty air, you'll need to prune your tree in the early spring to prevent limb breakage. Prune the weakest branches including any dead or diseased branches.

I noticed this says to plant away from sidewalks and structures. Does anyone know about how far?
Lacey on May 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Most would suggest 30 feet. I have a pair of these about 10 feet from the driveway and sidewalk, they were there when I bought the house and are about 14 years old. No problems with cracks in either the driveway or sidewalk so far.
Growth rate? Wet tolerant?

BEST ANSWER: extremely slow in Daytona FL
