I wonder if you could tap your maple?? I've heard they are real water hogs, though, and send out lots of shallow roots, so that will make things tough for you as far as planting underneath it. You could remove it of course, but it's always a bummer to take down a healthy tree. We had a bunch of dead and dying trees (mostly elms) removed earlier this year--it is amazing the difference it made in opening things up, but I would have had a hard time doing it if they were all healthy!
