This is a very small tree, generally from ten to twenty feet in height. It is found among the Alleghanies, and from Maine to Wisconsin and southward. It has deep, dense, heavy leaves, and smooth, fight-green, striped bark. The wood is of a more durable pharacter than the other maples, the only objection to it being its inferior size. It, therefore, is only of use as an ornamental tree. I would suggest grafting to any one that intends raising it, as it is said to reach three or four times its ordinary size when grafted.
