Field Maple trees create a striking addition to a garden and can be a highly effective way to add a larger feature to the garden. This Field Maple Elsrijk is a specially selected cultivar of Field Maple which has an excellent conical crown which will grow into a medium sized tree. These specimens are all 10ft (300cm) in height. Its full latin name is Acer campestre ‘Elsrijk’.
These Field Maple trees are all bare root, that is to say they have been grown in the field and are sold without any soil around the roots. They should therefore be planted as soon as possible after purchasing and are only available during the colder months of the year. Trees of this size should be planted using tree stakes and ties to help prevent them from blowing around too much in their first years of establishment.
Due to the size of these Field Maple Elsrijk trees, we will need to quote for delivery on an individual basis. Please telephone us to discuss delivery of your plants. Plants can, of course, be collected from our nursery free of charge.
The more common Field Maple (Acer campestre) is an excellent deciduous native hedging plant and grows well on most soils. Field Maple (sometimes known as Hedge Maple) has been used for many centuries as a hedging plant and will be found in most farm hedges throughout the country. Its leaves turn a yellow colour in the autumn and can show red flushes. It pleaches well to create raised hedging screens.
In addition to standard Field Maple Streetwise, we also supply a range of other trees suitable as specimens for planting in the garden. More information can be found on the trees section of our website.
