    They are used in many landscapes as ornamentals – the Norway maple is especially fast-growing and cold-resistant.  Because of their beautiful autumn foliage many countries have traditions around the changing colour of maples.  Sugar maples in Canada and in New England are well known for this, and the trees contribute to the local economies of those regions.
