A red maple from Larry

Posted on |

This has sprouted up in my front yard hedges. West facing. been there for maybe two years now. Should I replant it in the yard or pull it like a weed ?

Hi Larry,

you have a seedling/sapling of the red maple tree, Acer rubrum. It is very common in our area. Only you can decide what to do with it!  It is a nice tree whose leaves turn bright red in the Autumn.
