Maple Trees

Nothing is more gorgeous than a maple tree changing color in the fall!  The leaves turn yellow, red, and even purplish in color.  After growing up in an area populated with maple trees and moving away some 20 years ago, it's amazing how you can miss something that used to be taken for granted and seemed so meaningless at the time.  Streets here look so empty in the fall, barely any leaves, no color... I sure miss those breathtaking scenes where maple trees would form a multicolored tunnel on a street, where trees on each side of the street were so tall and full that the top of the tree met the tree across the street.  Oh and the maple syrup and the sweet maple goodies...  If maple trees can survive in your area, you definitely won't regret your purchase!
