Black Maple, Acer nigra

IMG_2225Here is a photo of a Black Maple (Acer nigra) on a Scenic Lawns & Landscaping, Inc. site that we maintain. This is a rare tree to be found in the Maryland area. It is native to the mid-west, and is closely related to the Sugar Maple (Acer saccharum). It has beautiful fall color, great structural characteristics and lots of leaves to pick up!

  1. This is a beautiful tree! I might just ask my Tree Care guy if he has seen one of these before! I know he is from Maryland originally! I love the fall colors! 🙂
