In this Livingetc article Lou Meyer, business developer for Davey's mid-Atlantic region shares which maples will help bring fall color into your yard.
The vibrant colored foliage of maple trees makes a real visual impact and means they’re one of the best trees for fall color in the yard. There are many different varieties to choose from but the smaller and slower growing Acer palmatum, generally referred to as Japanese maples, tend to be the most popular variety for small urban yards.
Many are slow growing too, so although the ultimate predicted height might initially seem a little off-putting, they will take years to reach this. Maple trees are the very definition of low maintenance, as all they need is a sunny or part shaded position and some well-drained soil to thrive. Pruning Japanese maples isn’t usually necessary either as they have such a beautiful, natural shape.
