Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Acer pensylvanicum (striped maple, also known as moosewood and moose maple) is a species of maple native to northern forests in eastern North America from southern Ontario east to Nova Scotia and south to eastern Illinois and New Jersey, and also at high elevations in the Appalachian Mountains much farther south than in the rest of its range, to northern Georgia. It is a small deciduous tree growing to 5-10 m tall, with a trunk up to 20 cm diameter. The young bark is striped with green and white, and when a little older, brown. The leaves are broad and soft, 8-15 cm long and 6-12 cm broad, with three shallow forward-pointing lobes. The fruit is a samara; the seeds are about 27 mm long and 11 mm broad, with a wing angle of 145 and a conspicuously veined pedicel.show more
