What's a good Crimson King Maple replacement tree?


I have a 30-35 year old Crimson King Maple that died earlier this year; apparently from Verticillium Wilt. I'm looking for a good replacement tree--similar to a maple--to replace it. Something that can be planted in the same, or near the same spot and is less susceptible to verticillium wilt. I'm in Utah so it would need to be able to handle cold winters and hot summers. Anyone know of such a tree?

Thanks!

Crimson King is a cultivar of Norway Maple, an invasive, shallow-rooted tree. If you are in area that will grow Norway Maple, you could also try some better Maples such as Sugar Maple, Red Maple, or Big-Leaf Maple which are all as cold hardy as Norway Maple.

I was aware it was related to the Norway maple but didn't know it was somewhat of a derivative of it...a subset or lesser tree. I believe, if my memory serves me, that the sugar maple is supposed to be less susceptible to verticillium wilt. Is that anything that you're aware of? Would there be a problem planing another maple in the same spot?

I planted an autumn blaze maple elsewhere in the yard a few years ago. Where would you rank that (I think it's a combination of sugar & red maple...maybe).

Thanks again!
