The answer really depends upon the type of maple you're interested in. Maple (Acer) contains about 150 species and even more cultivars. Each has characteristics that distinguish it from others. In general, maple trees grow best in full sunshine with the exception of some Japanese maples - they prefer morning sun and filtered afternoon shade. Some like well draining soils, other prefer soils that stay moist. If you can supply the complete name of your Acer, we can give you more specific growing habits, preferences, etc. Hope this information is helpful.
