The silver maple is a large tree that can grow to be 35 metres tall with a trunk that's more than 100 centimetres in diameter. The silver maple is very similar to the red maple — except that its leaves turn pale yellow or brown, not red, in the fall. Its seeds are found in "keys" that fall down from the tree in the late spring. Sometimes, the trunks of silver maples are hollow, creating space for animals and birds to live in. SOURCE: Government of Ontario
