Glorious Shade
I couldn't imagine when I planted the October Glory Red Maple in 1999 that it would ever be big enough to shade the backyard play area.

Where the Shade Falls

PLOTTING THE SHADE IN MY YARD

These trees live in the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 6, Central New Jersey. When we moved here in 1996, the only healthy trees on the property were the dogwood and the 50-foot black cherry behind the shed. The rest was all sun all the time. We needed shade!
