Commonly known as the silver maple, Acer saccharinum is native to North America. Its common name derives from the silvery underside of its green leaves which turn golden yellow in autumn. This is an extremely vigorous, fast-growing tree which can reach over 30 metres in height. Does best in a moist, well drained location but will tolerate both wet and dry soils, as well as air pollution.
