Western Species
Two species, the Rocky Mountain maple, or Acer glabrum, and the bigtooth maple, or Acer grandidentatum, live out west. The Rocky Mountain maple is mostly in Utah and Arizona while the other is throughout many western and mountain states.
Near Phoenix
The natural habitats for both of these varieties of maple come close to Phoenix, but does not extend to the area.
