Field Maple

IMG_20180510_074931.jpg

Field Maples are not often seen as specimen trees in their own right.  More often they are part of a hedgerow.  They are our only native maple tree and any with a girth of more than 1.5m are considered "notable".

This field maple, between the pond and the fields, had a girth of 1.78m in 2022. Because they are modest-sized trees field maples tend to pass unnoticed but they are attractive trees and their flowers provide forage for the bees in the spring.
