Habitat Overview Maples occur across the state, ranging from upland to bottomland to swamp environments. One species, in particular, Red Maple, occupies this full range and is also one of the major tree species involved in old-field succession. Just as widely ranging are specialist herbivores that feed both on Red Maple as well as others across the range of this habitat.
