Acer campestre (Field Maple)
The UK's only native maple. A beautiful under celebrated tree which forms lush maple leaves in a glossy green on red stems through spring and summer turning golden in autumn.
Also a fantastic tree for its wildlife benefits and it is tolerant to pollution.
Hardy and easy to grow can be kept small or grown to full maturity (ultimate height and spread 12 x 5m) over 10-20 years. Prune when dormant in winter to keep smaller.
