JB Featured Tree – Armstrong Red Maple

Apr 1st, 2014


The featured tree this month is Acer rubrum ‘Armstrong’ Armstrong Red Maple. A very upright tree that quickly grows in height while spreading slowly. The Armstrong maple maintains it’s columnar shape by only spreading out to 15′ wide and reaching up to 45′ in height. A great tree for tight spaces and street planting. The lighter green colored leaves pictured below turn yellow to reddish-orange in the fall. Armstrong maple is a zone 4 tree and available in both 15 & 25 gal containers.
