I have a large maple and the area underneath it gets a lot of shade. Can I plant Boston ferns? I see them in the woods and they look beautiful!

The ferns you're seeing in the woods are not the same as Boston ferns. They are wild types, adapted to the weather in your part of the country. Learn a little more in this article: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/foliage/ferns/taking-care-of-outdoor-ferns.htm
By talking to local landscaping companies, plant stores, or the Extension Service, you should be able to find a source for outdoor ferns you could use. Here's a link for the E.S.: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/extension-search/
