Norway Maple Tree growing between 40-60 feet this tree provides great shade and is beautiful even when isolated

The Norway Maple Tree is a native of Europe and Western Asia and has become naturalized in North America. The leaves are dark green with five lobes and an average of 4-7 inches long. The two lobes on the base of the leaf are the smallest. Milky sap that can be seen on the leaf of a twig. The samara fruit consist of two pods joined together flows down the tree when the wind blows. It is hardy in zone 3-7 and adapts to soil that's sandy, loam or clay. Pruning is only as needed. These trees do their best in full sun exposure with little shade. Commonly used as a street tree, specimen plant or just shade. Mulching around the tree is recommended because of the shallow roots and the density of the foliage. Things to watch out for are anthracnose, leaf scorch, and verticillium wilt.

These trees are more likely to the eastern portions of Europe and have become quite popular in the United States and Canada.

These trees do produce a flower in the early spring that is greenish yellow. These are replaced with the leaves in late spring and through the summer months. In the autumn months, these trees will be a vibrant, almost golden color as the foliage turns colors. These are classified as deciduous and will shed leaves during late autumn and winter months. They will produce a seed that is great for attracting birds, squirrels, and many other smaller animals. The scientific name for these trees is Acer Planatoides. These trees are not considered to be fast growers and will reach an annual growth rate of approximately 1 foot per year. These trees are super easy to grow. They are very adaptable and can acclimate themselves to various soil conditions as long as moisture, and they are in a place that they will drain. There is very little maintenance involved in keeping these trees healthy. They are tolerant of many pests and disease. Once they become established, they can also tolerate periods of drought. These trees grow best when grown in climate zones, 2 through 9. They prefer full to partially sunny areas and will make beautiful shade trees.
