Best Maple for So Cal
Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and looking forward to learning and contributing. I would like to plant a good shade tree to help shade the house during the summer months. We are in Riverside County. I have always loved maples and realize that most of the species probably aren't a good choice for this region. I have seen maples....or at least I think they were maples in and around the LA area. the leafs are very big! Can anyone suggest a species of maple that would be successful in this region. Anyone have good experiences or tips on things to avoid. Thanks for all the help.
