Acer rubrum (October Glory Red Maple)

October Glory Red Maple

It is well-suited as a street tree in northern and mid-south climates in residential and other suburban areas but the bark is thin and easily damaged by mowers.
October Glory (cultivar name is 'PNI 0268') can be grown in the southern portion of zone 8 in the eastern US and develops good fall color. October Glory holds its foliage well into fall compared to Red Sunset. Red Sunset defoliates earlier.
Roots can raise sidewalks as silver maples can but they have a less aggressive root system and so they make a good street tree. Surface roots beneath the canopy can make mowing difficult. Branches often grow upright through the crown forming poor attachments to the trunk.
