Box Elder Brush Layers 25 For $99.99 Description
Box Elder Brush Layers, Acer Negundo is a Shallow Root, Drought Tolerant Tree
Box Elder Brush Layers, also called ash-leaf maple, are hardy in zones 2 through 9, prefer well-drained, moist soil, and grow between 30 and 60 feet tall with a 20 to 40-foot spread, with a fast growth rate. These trees grow throughout the United States, found in wetlands such as lakes, streams, ponds, and other low-lying wet places. This tree has a shallow root system, making it drought tolerant. Conversely, it can also withstand short flooding for up to one month.
Leaves and Seeds:
The leaves on these trees are the only family member with divided leaves. Each leaflet is approximately 3 inches long and appears opposite the other. Each booklet is notched. The leaves are a dull green through the summer, then turn a pretty yellow in the fall. In the spring, both male and female trees grow yellow-green flowers from March through May.
Box Elder Brush Layers, Acer Negundo is Hardy in Zones 2-10 and attract Birds for their Seed Production.
Samaras hang in clusters, which remain on the tree into the winter months. The grain is about 1 1/2 inches long. The seeds hang in long chains in the fall and winter after the leaves have fallen off the tree. The seeds attract birds because they provide food in the winter when other food sources are scarce.
Bark and twigs:
The bark is a light grey to yellow-brown, and it darkens with age. The twigs on a Box Elder tree are Light green or purplish-brown. Twigs are stout and sometimes covered with velvety white hairs that are easily rubbed off.
Uses and History:
Since the Boxelder grows fast, its wood is light and weak. It's perfect for pulp, inexpensive furniture, and other wooden items. Native Americans used the lower part of the trunk to make bowls, dishes, pipe stems, poles, and drums. Since Box elders grow in moist areas, they plant at the edges of streams, creeks, ponds, and swamps. They are also planted to provide shade and ground cover and to protect the banks near waterways.
