Maple tree

.
Maple trees are classified in the genus Acer in the Maple family (Aceraceae).
There are approximately 125 species, most of which are native to Asia, but several species also occur in Europe, northern Africa, and North America.
While most maples are trees that can reach anywhere from 10 meters to 45 meters tall, other maples are shrubs of less than 10 meters in height. Leaves of maples are usually deciduous in opposite pairs and are palmate and lobed in most species. Maple trees are known for their vibrant leaf colors in autumn. They love to put on a display of oranges, browns, yellows and reds every year. Some trees may have leaves sporting several of these colors at once!
Many people decide to plant these because they work well as shade, street and specimen trees.
The fruits of maples are samaras in winged pairs enclosing a seed that are dispersed by wind. Maple is an important food source for wildlife.
The wood of maples varies among species and is generally light in color. Maple wood is used for furniture, flooring, woodwork, plywood, and firewood. Most species produce sap that can be used to produce sugar. The most notable commercial production of maple syrup comes from the sugar maple.
