Maple, Fall Fiesta Sugar
New to the 2020 fundraising tree sale is the Fall Fiesta® Sugar Maple (Acer saccharum 'Bailsta'). This tree is known for its upright, round habit that reaches about 60 feet tall at maturity with an average spread of 50-60 feet. Basically, this is an excellent shade tree when mature!
The Fall Fiesta features very thick green leaves that are glossy during the spring and summer months. Come the fall, it boasts a beautiful mixture of orange, red and yellow - thus its "fiesta" name! Added bonus: the Fall Fiesta is not prone to maple leaf tatter!
The Fall Fiesta is a native North American species and is often regarded as a heritage tree worthy of planting for future generations to enjoy!
