The Norway Maple, Acer platanoides, is a large, upright tree with good autumn colour that is vase shaped when young, spreading into a round crown as it ages. Suitable for almost any soil or site.Norway Maple trees can reach a height of about 25 metres.This is a big, vigorous tree with great yellow-orange autumn colour. Its small, yellow green flowers appear before the leaves break in spring and attract bees. This European tree has been growing wild in Britain for centuries. The hard wood has a fine grain but is not strong enough for structural uses; it is mainly used for cabinets and other indoor furniture.
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
