Acer Pensylvanicum

The Striped Maple tree, Acer pensylvanicum, is a small tree or large, upright shrub with bright green stripes on the young bark. Suitable for any garden with moist, fertile soil. This small, bushy tree is grown for its ornamental young bark, which starts out bright green with brown, diamond shaped markings, developing brown vertical stripes as it matures. On the old wood, the green stripes fade to grey. In gardens it is usually pruned every 2-3 years to maintain a supply of colourful young stems. It is also known as Snalebark Maple (there are several varieties) and of course it gets its names from its bark which is highly decorative. The leaves are 3 pointed and large, turning warm yellow/orange in autumn. Striped Maple trees can reach a height of about 8 metres.

How Standard Trees are Measured:
All the plants in the ornamental trees section are graded as standards, which means that they are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
Standard trees are 2 - 3.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive; they are the most mature trees that you can buy from us. We cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
