Maple Tree 'Autumn Blaze'

Consecutively winner of the Urban Tree of the Year 2003 & 2004 and in 1997 won Tree of the Year by the Iowa Nursery and Landscape Association. The Autumn Blaze Maple is a hybrid of two popular maples, the red and silver maple, though it has surpassed both in looks and popularity. It has the best of both, brilliant red color, dense branching, and a rapid growth rate.
