Native and rare, it is found in the United States, Ontario and southwestern Quebec near the St. Lawrence River in very rare places in the greater Montreal area where it grows in sporadic stands. Due to rampant urban development in Montreal and certain forestry practices, the black maple is becoming increasingly rare. It can cross with the sugar maple naturally to which it is closely related, which sometimes makes it difficult to identify. It reaches a large size like the sugar maple but prefers forest environments to open environments. Its leaves are three-lobed and measure 15 to 25 centimeters in length (petiole included) and have a drooping appearance at their ends. Dark green on top, the underside of the leaves and the petiole are covered with small hairs. Its leaves take on a brownish yellow tint in autumn compared to the sugar maple which turns orange-yellow with tones of red. It would be interesting to reintroduce it more where it has lost ground.

IMPORTANT: We do not deliver trees 6' and over! (Nursery pickup only)
