A medium-sized, deciduous, native tree with a compact and bushy crown. Leaves with 5 blunt lobes, turning yellow or red in the autumn. Flowers are small and green, forming typical winged maple fruits. The Field Maple is relatively quick growing and deciduous, losing leaves in the winter. Frequently used in rustic country hedges as a companion to Hawthorn and other hedgerow species. Can also be planted as an interesting specimen tree and commonly seen within native woodlands throughout the UK. This tree is good for coppicing and can be used for wood-turning and carving.
