Field Maple (Acer campestre)
A medium sized but fast growing tree, Field Maple is often found in hedgerows and mixed woodland (we include Field Maple in our mixed native woodland collections.) It's a pretty tree; its leaves turn bright yellow, then orange brown in the autumn. In spring Field Maple has small yellow flowers, succeeded by red fruit.
Maple wood, tough and fine grained, has been used for centuries for high quality items. It was used by the Saxons for harps, and in the Middle Ages for ornamental drinking bowls called mazers.
Field Maples are often found in hedges, where you most notice them in the autumn because of their leaves. They're good hedge plants and lay easily.
Provenance certificates are available on request for Field Maple trees, which are from the Southwest of England.
