Field Maple

Common everywhere, the Field Maple is useful as a medium size stand-alone tree and is commonly used as part of a mixed planting within a rural style hedge

Opposite buds like most Maples, it also boasts ‘Winged’ corky bark, a characteristic it shares with some species of Elm

Flowering slightly later than Norway Maple, it tends to do so after the leaves have emerged

Winged seeds are the result of the flowers, which are produced in abundance
