Latin Name: Acer platanoides
Other common names: Norway Maple
Mature height:: 75-80′
Soil/Climate: Likes moist soil. Turns bright yellow in fall. Zones 3-7 The Norway maple is adapted to extremes in temperatures and soils. It can tolerate poorer soils and urban pollution. It grows well in sandy, loam and clay soil. Full sun or light shade.
Notes: Norway Maple seeds are flattened instead of globelike. The tree leafs out earlier than most maples and holds its leaves somewhat longer in autumn. It has become popular for bonsai in Europe. Norway maple casts dense shade and it is difficult to grow grass underneath the low branching. Pruning and thinning out is recommended. Best time to prune is between May and June or November and December. Milky sap secretes from the broken leaf-stalk.
Wildlife: Many mammals and birds eat the seeds.
