Silver maple is a fast growing, long-lived tree native to eastern Nebraska. The species is ideal for wet bottomland sites and can easily recover from extended periods of flooding. It performs well on uplands, but does not tolerate alkaline or calcareous soil or drought conditions. Silver maple can be used in riparian buffer plantings. The wood of the silver maple is brittle and can break in wind, snow or ice storms.
Possible problems are multiple main stems, scale insects, greenstriped maple worms, and maple bladder-gall mites.
