View Full Version : Maple Seedling... Sugar?

Driving you guys nuts yet with all the "name that tree" posts?

Here's another... I picked this maple up last year out of the brush along the woodline in my in-law's backyard (in the mountains of central West Virginia). It only had four leaves and didn't really grow any last year, just kind of existed. It's certainly springing to life this year, though!

I'm guessing Sugar Maple. There were several maples nearby (Silver, Red, Sugar), both wild in the woods and planted in the yard. Could even be a mix of some sort.

It does look like a sugar maple leaf. The corners are more rounded.

I received a sugar maple from Arbor a little over 2 years ago, and his young leaves look exactly like that. He (I call him he), was probably 4 feet when I got him, and now he is about 10 feet.
