Field Maple

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 grows extremely well as part of a mixed species native hedge and will grow extremely well with other species such as Blackthorn, Hawthorn, Spindle, Beech, Dog Rose, Hazel and Hornbeam.  We normally stock Field Maple as bare root plants during the colder months of the year which is a cost effective way of planting a mixed species native hedge.  Scroll down for more information on the plants that we have available.
