Acer campestre (Field Maple)

Acer campestre

Also known as: Hedge Maple

Native: Europe, including Britain

Location: Often found in hedges.

Foliage

Leaves turn golden yellow to red in autumn. Field Maple hybridizes with the Montpelier Maple (Acer monspessulanum) and Cretan Maple (Acer sempervirens) in south Europe, where confusion may arise over identification. A milky sap exuded from the leaves distinguishes the Field Maple.

Uses

Rarely produces timber-sized trees and so usually used for turning or carving. Used in middle ages for musical instruments. Satisfactory for firewood.

Flowers

Acer campestre

Flowers are hermaphrodite clustered in upright heads of 10 or so, appearing in late April or early May and developing into the hanging fruits
