Has been tip pruned to promote side branching. The Red Maple fades out to green during summer time in Dallas, Texas. It will again reden this fall. This leaf color change happens every year during the heat of the summer. In your area of the world this may not happen.
We can tell the Red Maple from the Green Maples now by checking their trunk color.
Photos show the maples in spring (red) and summer (green).

Overall Rating Quality ValueMy Red Maple arrived dormant with no leaves, but within three weeks it was budding. And now six weeks later, it has splendid foliage. Which is truly amazing considering it is now November.
