Silver Maple - Acer saccharinum
This is the fouth tree I have been visiting in the Maple Family. Since it is winter time, lets look at the bark.
This Acer saccharinum tree lives at the Botanical Gardens of Asheville. This tree is also known as the Silver Maple. My daughter and I took a walk today at the Botanical Gardens to take photos of bark; here is what we found.
The Bark of the silver maple tree when young, is smooth and gray. When this tree matures, the bark is silvery gray that looks shaggy as long pieces of bark turn up at the ends. These pictures are of a fully mature silver maple that is probably near 100 feet tall.
