Japenese Maple ~ Acer palmatum

This tree is classically used as an ornamental showy tree and was found to the left of the main entrance of the school, by the big flight of stairs. It's native to Japan, Korea, and China and can be found growing around forest edges, forests, meadows, fields, and manmade/disturbed habitats. All of its ornamental qualities stick out to me. Its iconic leaves and the red samaras stick out, in contrast to its vase-shaped trunk pattern with its thin and smooth bark.

Underneath the tree, it states "Dedicated to Significant Growth Through Learning" 1997 ~ Boston University School of Learning.

Around 2010 is when Boston University sold this campus to what's known today as Innovation Academy or The Charter Schools.
