Who doesn't like a red-head?
Our plastic red maple tree will add a bit of brilliant red foliage to your diorama or school project. We have plenty of animals to go with the landscape you create. Do you make model railroad layouts? Our plastic trees could lend some variety. We have seen more realistic trees for model railroaders, so our trees may be best used in layouts for younger engineers, as they are sturdy enough for play. All materials in this plastic red maple tree has passed the required testing, as these trees are sold as toys for kids 3 and older. The name "Red Maple" is stamped in small letters on the bottom of the tree's base. Therapists like to use our realistic models for sand trays. Check out our other tree, flower, and plant replicas, toys and gifts.
About Maple Trees
In the broadest definition from Wikipedia, "a tree is a plant with an elongated stem, or trunk, supporting leaves or branches". Under this definition, palms, bamboo, and tree ferns are included as "trees". Some definitions attempt to narrow this to what most of us consider trees by naming specific height or use for lumber. However, when it comes right down to it, a 100-foot tree is still basically a plant, like any other bush, flower, or crop plant.
Maple is the common name given to members of the Acer genus of trees. There are approximately 128 species, most of which are native to Asia. There is only one species, Acer laurinum, native to the Southern Hemisphere. 54 species of maple are considered under threat of extinction by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
