Silver Maple

Hamilton Township, New Jersey 08690, United States

Created By: Unity College


Silver Maple (Acer saccharinum) is a medium sized tree. They are fast growing, and their leaves have deeper lobes than most maples. They are not commonly planted in urban areas, because they have brittle wood, which results in many broken branches. Silver Maple was chosen for this tour, because Silver Maples are native and are relatively common in the area.

This tree often grows in wet areas, so it is abundant in the park. This specimen can be found on the shore of Spring Lake, and is clearly visible from the trail around the lake.
