Tree of the Week - paperbark maple 

 

Fabulous Paperbark MaplePaperbark Maple

Acer griseum--Paperbark Maple 

Hardiness Zones: 4 to 8 
Height: 20 ft Spread: 20 ft
Form: rounded 
Type: small deciduous tree 
Annual Growth Rate: less than 12 inches 

Comments: Paperbark maple has peeling, papery, cinnamon-brown bark and russet or scarlet red fall color. The bark begins peeling on 2 or 3 year old branches. This slow-growing tree has unusual, deeply lobed leaves, and is a wonderful accent or specimen tree, especially when given a background of evergreens or even a building's wall. It's hailed as the Michigan Nursery and Landscape Association's  2002 Grower's Choice Award recipient - "spectacular in the winter."
