The Q&A Archives: Maple Tree Lifespan

Question: What is the average lifespan of Maple Trees. Longest? Shortest?

Answer: The maples (Acer spp) are such a diverse group of trees it is just about impossible to define lifespans that way. Some are potentially longlived trees (sugar maples) and others are relatively short-lived as a rule (box elders). To get an idea of the types of things that could shorten a maple's life, you might be interested in the information at this web page which details some potential problems. I'm sorry I can't be more specific.
