How Fast do Maple Trees Grow?
Most maple trees can grow about 2 feet per year. Faster growing varieties like silver maple, autumn blaze maple, and October glory maple can grow 3 to 5 feet in a single growing season. Japanese maples are slower growing. While larger varieties can grow as much as a foot or even 2 feet in a single year when they are younger, they may only grow an inch or 2 in height per year when they are older.
