Free Images of Norway Maple Trees 

Note on large files:  Very large files may be bigger than your screen.  
Right click on any portion of the image showing and chose "save as". 

 

 

Acer plantanoides is commonly known as the "Norway Maple".   It has leaves that are five-lobed and 4-7 inches wide.  

Originating from Europe, this species retains its leaves for about 2 weeks longer than NA native maples. Norway Maples reach heights of 50 feet (18-21 m) having a dense, round crown.  Fruits are horizontal and winged.

This species many easily be confused with the Sugar Maple, except that this species will exude a milky sap from its stalk if broken.   Unlike the Sugar Maple, this species has dark green (rather than yellow-green) leaves and has 5-7 (instead of 3-5) bristle-tipped (rather than blunt-pointed) lobes.

Leaves always turn yellow in fall - never red or orange.

How to tell the difference between a Sugar Maple vs. a Norway Maple?

In young trees, telling the two species apart can be quite difficult.  The bark of young trees is similar, as are the five lobed leaves.

A horticulturist once explained that there are two main ways to tell the two species of trees apart – look at the leaves and the terminal buds.  The sinuses between the leaf lobes of a Norway Maple [Acer platanoides] is shallower.  In a Sugar Maple [Acer saccharum] the sinuses are deeper and more pronounced. 

Also, quite often, the central leaf lobe of the Sugar Maple is slightly longer in length.  A Norway Maple’s leaf has a “rounder” appearance.  In the fall, there are differences in the foliage colour.  While the leaves of Norway Maples change colours later in the season, they become a uniform pale yellow colour.  Sugar Maples are famous for their brilliant autumn colours or red, orange and yellow.

During the growing season, you might try to remove a leaf and break the stem.  A Norway Maple will ooze a white sap, while a Sugar Maple will not show signs of sap.

The buds at the end of a Norway Maple branch looks “sceptre” like.  It has a large bud at the end of the branch with very small axillary buds nestled beside it.  In a Sugar Maple, there are three, pointed buds at the end of each branch with the middle one being somewhat longer.  The bud method of identification is more accurate.

Trunk identification is difficult when both species are young since they both have smooth grayish brown bark.  In older trees, the bark of the Sugar Maple becomes scaly.  The Norway Maple’s trunk acquires vertical furrows.

The Wonder 
of Trees


 

 

 

"Even if I knew 
that tomorrow 
the world 
would go to pieces, 
I would still plant 
my apple tree."

~ Martin Luther ~

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"I think that I 
shall never see
A poem as lovely
as a tree.

A tree whose hungry 
mouth is pressed,
Against the earth's 
sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks 
at God all day
And lifts her leafy 
arms to pray;

A tree that may 
in Summer wear
A nest of robins
 in her hair;

Upon whose bosom 
snow has lain;
Who intimately 
lives with rain.

Poems are made 
by fools like me,
but only God 
can make a tree."

~ Joyce Kilmer ~
"Trees" 1914

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"The best time
to plant a tree
was 20 years ago.
The next best
time is now."

~ Chinese Proverb ~
