We named this tree because the seed source was collected from the northern-most range found in Teton County in Wyoming. Considered to be a small maple but often exceeds expectations in both height and width when planted in the landscape. Bigtooth maples are considered a sugar maple of the West, having evolved to deal with extreme weather and alkaline soil conditions, whereas the sugar maples of eastern North America simply can’t cope with these conditions. Expect outstanding autumn foliage ranging from orange to red.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:

water_drops_icon  These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.

About sizes of our plants:

Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
