50 Norway Maple

Norway Maple, Acer Platanoides

It is a broad tree growing up to 40 feet with a spread of up to 25 feet. It is more tolerant of heat, drought and alkaline clay soil than most maples. There are many cultivars of Norway Maple and some have rust to red-purple new leaves that fade to green by summer. The flowers are small and greenish yellow in color. Issues can be shallow roots and dense shade which can limit lawn beneath the canopy.
