THE Acer griseum - Paperbark Maple thread - Got Pics?
Maybe not the rarest of trees but still a small import most people do not think of at first. At first my small mail order transplant suffered some dieback and underperformed. This year it is actually looking pretty good.
It's in decent generic yard soil on the north side of my house midway up the hill. Branch on the right, the old main trunk is probably due to get pruned off next spring. Even though it has leaves the new leader is considerably more vigorous.
Someone out there has to have a bigger one and don't cheat using a picture you googled lol!
