Sugar Maple
(Wide & Flat: Opposite Arrangement)
Also called Rock maple for its hard wood, this important timber tree is found on moist wooded slopes throughout Pennsylvania, typically reaching 60'-80' high. Sugar maple wood is used for furniture, musical instruments and flooring and the sap is tapped for maple syrup production. Sugar maple is an excellent ornamental tree for large open areas. Birds and rodents eat the seeds. Deer, squirrels, porcupine and other mammals browse the twigs, buds and bark.
