Abstract

Wouldn't it be great if there was a tree-sized maple to plant in our landscapes that was native to the interior West (Rocky Mountain /Intermountain area)? What if this maple had fall color to rival a sugar maple (Acer saccharum), extreme cold tolerance, good drought resistance, tolerance of fairly high soil pH, and could even be tapped for maple syrup production? Well, such a tree does exist. It's called canyon maple or bigtooth maple (Acer grandidentatum) and it has great potential for landscape use in the West.
