March 25 - Silver Maple - Acer saccharinum

Silver Maple samaras.

March 25 - Silver Maple

The Silver Maples have these incredible samaras "helicopters" that we see flying through the air.
You can always identify the silver maple by its leaves. They are green on one side and silver on the other. They are deeply lobed. The bark is shaggy and the helicopters are big and fly!
