Acer Davidii George Forrest

Acer davidii George Forrest has emerald green bark with vertical white stripes. It is a somewhat spreading tree with a loose canopy that doesn't cast dense shade. Suitable for most gardens. It is a vigorous tree when young, quickly reaching about 10 metres, when it slows right down and takes its time to reach a final height of 12-15 metres. The thick, dark green leaves have red stalks and turn peachy yellows and orange red in autumn with bunches of winged seeds. All of which make a tree to plant by a path or lawn, or on the edge of woodland, where it can be seen! Best grown in moist, well-drained soils, George Forrest will tolerate quite wet places and loves heavy clay.

How Standard Trees are Measured:
All the trees in our garden trees list are graded as standards. This means that they are graded by their girth in centimetres with the measurement generally taken about 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which varies betwen species. 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. The bigger measurement means a taller tree and our standard trees are generally between 2.5 - 3.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive.
