Maples are great for landscaping because they are fast growing trees that also provide you with ample amounts of shade. Shade trees are great for areas that receive a lot of sun because they provide you with natural protection from harmful UV rays while at the same time creating a beautiful look in your yard. The fasted growing maples include the Norway Maple, that not only grows quickly but is also cold resistant, making it the ideal choice for the cooler climate countries. Maples are also the most popular trees for landscaping in residential and municipalities because they respond well to trimming and sculpting to maintain a clean cut look. Because of this characteristic, many species of maple trees are used in bonsai art, in which the trees are grown in small pots to create miniature versions.

Maple is great for ornamental trees because they respond to trimming and can be cut and sculpted into any shape or form you desire. The best ornamental trees tend to be those that are smaller in stature. Different types of maple trees come in dwarf versions that do not over grow and take up little space in your yard. Dwarf trees are a great option for homes and yards with little space because they offer all the attributes of a regular sized plant in a smaller version. A popular species used for decoration is the dwarf Japanese maple. These trees are medium sized trees that produce vibrant colored leaves in the spring and the fall. Japanese maple tree leaves have a vibrant red color in the spring that slowly morphs into a brilliant purple throughout the summer and back to beautiful yellow and orange in the fall.
