Canadian Maple

Essenze naturali

Acer Saccharinium is a North American tree which can grow to a height of 25–40 metres with a trunk 3.5 metres in diameter. An easily grown tree, the maple likes a well-drained but not too dry soil. This gives it a rustic look, characterised by the initially grey or yellowish and later reddish bark, which tends to come away in large flat chunks. It has a large, broad crown from which the flowers only emerge after the leaves and the fruit grows in double samaras.
