The maple tree is known for its striking fall color and distinctive leaves. And there are many maples, ranging from the small Tatarian maple (Acer tataricum) to the towering red maple (Acer Rubrum), which can reach heights of 60 feet or more. Bees and insects benefit a lot from the maple tree because of its rich source of pollen contained in the flowers. The flowers come in shades of attractive red, orange or sometimes yellow color and are the greatest attraction for the insects. Although they can grow well in absence of direct sunlight, blooming does not occur until the veined leaves bud. The fruit, known as samaras is a marvel of nature with different seeds covered in nut lets and also having an attached wing which helps in dispersing to vast distances.
