How Long Do Maple Trees Seed Each Season?

By Karen Carter ; Updated September 21, 2017
Sugar maple trees produce double-winged seeds.

Maple trees produce seeds 10 to 12 weeks after the flowers are pollinated. The seeds or samaras fruit ripen in September or October depending on the weather. Maple trees drop their seeds two weeks after the seeds mature. Maple trees do not produce seeds until they are at least 30 years old.
