Fall Landscaping Ideas – The Paperbark Maple

If you’re thinking about improving your landscape and curb appeal for the fall season, one way to go is the paperbark maple tree. According to Karen Chapman of Houzz,

“The paperbark maple is a more modest-size, slow-growing deciduous tree, prized not only for its beautiful foliage but also for its attractive peeling cinnamon-colored bark. In fall the leaves of the paperbark maple change from green to shades of coral, peach and caramel — a wonderful highlight of any autumnal display.”
