Planning to install this yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for DIY installations. These sizes do not require any offloading equipment.
Any tree or shrub that is sized by HEIGHT or CAL (Caliper- size where the trunk meets the root flare) is delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap (B&B). They are typically 1000+ LBS per plant. They will require heavy equipment to install. Installation is not included in the price of the plant. We highly recommend adding the ServeScape ‘One-Click’ Installation service (must be added at the cart page) for material of this size, or working with a contractor that can provide equipment for installation.

For any tree or shrub that is sized larger than 10’ HEIGHT or 3” CAL, the customer will be required to provide offloading equipment or a contractor to offload unless paying for installation through ServeScape. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor can have equipment ready upon your plant's arrival!
**Dormancy Note - This plant is currently dormant for the winter! It is available for purchase! Your delivered plant may be dormant, or showing very little top growth. However, you can still plant! These plants are putting all their energy into root production, so they will be ready to thrive in the spring! If you have any issues with your plant the following peak season, you can fill out our return request form to request a replacement plant.

The Silver Maple, scientifically known as Acer saccharinum, is a large and fast-growing deciduous tree native to North America. It is known for its distinctive silver-gray bark and beautiful foliage.

The leaves of the Silver Maple are palm-shaped with deep lobes and a silvery-white underside, which gives the tree its name. In the spring, the tree produces clusters of small, yellow-green flowers that are followed by winged seeds called samaras. The foliage turns a vibrant yellow in the fall, creating a stunning display of color.

The Silver Maple is commonly used as a shade tree in larger landscapes and parks due to its fast growth and wide canopy. However, its shallow root system can make it less suitable for planting near structures or sidewalks
