Vine Maple occurs throughout the Cascades in Washington at elevations from sea level to 4,500 feet, ranging from sunny to shady, and wet to dry, from moist bottom-lands, to dry rocky slopes. It grows best in areas with moist soils and some shade. Vine Maple grows as a large shrub or small deciduous tree. Its habit is highly variable, often depending upon exposure. It can grow from 10 to 30 feet high with an equally variable spread. Its seeds are an important food source for many species of birds, squirrels, and rodents. The autumn leaf color can be quite vivid.
