Kentucky Color - Red Maple leaves upon the ground
It is a valuable lumber tree and a great yard tree, and often is a brilliant red in the fall, as opposed to a Sugar Maple . . . which is mostly orange and yellow, Billy Joe Fudge says.

By Billy Joe Fudge
Red Maple leaves upon the ground are a sure sign that summer is nearing it's end.
Red Maple will grow and thrive on a wider variety of soils and geographic conditions than any other hardwood tree in North America. It grows from Nova Scotia to Florida and as far west as Texas and Minnesota.
It is known in the lumber industry as Soft Maple but often times the wood is substituted for Sugar Maple in the making of high quality, "Hard Rock Maple" furniture.
It is a great yard tree and most often is a brilliant red in the fall as opposed to Sugar Maple, which can have red leaf color but for the most part will be orange and yellow. These leaves are off the tree in my yard which is a local tree that I transplanted from the Sparksville area. - BILLY JOE FUDGE, Retired State Forester
