Sugar Maples in Central Texas

jscaldwellFebruary 21, 2010

I've been told by more than one knowledgable person that the Maple I planted in front of our house was a bad idea for this climate. Can anyone substantiate this before I rip it out and replace it with a Red Oak?

Depends on the Sugar Maple. There are subspecies and possible an ecotype that could be just fine. We need more info.

Where did you get this maple? If it's bigtooth maple, Texas sugar maple, then it should do fine although shantung maple did a lot better than bigtooth maple for me.
