Here in the New England suburbs, grass grows up to the base of the oak
trees (white, red, black, scarlet) but there's typically a lot of bare soil
around the maples (sugar, red, and to a lesser extent norway). Silver
maples only grow in damper patches - it's common to see them at the edge of
a lake or stream.
My sense is that maples like a lot of water and compete vigourously for it.
