The Sugar Maple Tree

The Sugar Maple tree was the third tree we observed on the Tree walk at the Botanical Gardens of Asheville on May 17th.

The lobes that are shaped like a U is a really good way to ID this tree in the summer.  On this blog, you can see other images of the Sugar Maple tree.  Check out the list of words on the side and find the tree you want to see and read about.

On June 1st, I will be measuring some of the trees we talked about on our tree walk.  These measurements will be added to the Asheville tree map.  So come on out if you want to help measure.  I will be there at 2pm.  The Botanical Gardens at Asheville is located at 151 W T Weaver Boulevard in Asheville, NC.

Check back on this blog soon for the fourth tree we observed on the Tree walk at the Botanical Gardens
