Explore the beauty and versatility of Acer macrophyllum, commonly known as Bigleaf Maple or Oregon Maple. This fast-growing, deciduous tree can reach lofty heights of up to 100 ft and is known for its impressively large leaves, which are considered the biggest among all maple species. These leaves can reach up to 12 inches across, adding great value to landscapes with its vibrant green foliage.
The Bigleaf Maple blooms in April, with the flowers producing a spectacular display, suspended in pendulous racemes of greenish-yellow color. By October, these flowers give way to winged seeds, marking their readiness for propagation.
Native to western North America, this impressive tree prefers well-drained soils, adapting well to a variety of soil types (sandy, loamy or clay). Being hardy to zone 6, the tree thrives in semi-shade or no shade conditions, adding to its versatility. Acer macrophyllum is also home to various epiphytic species, especially in more humid parts of its natural range.
Beyond its visual appeal, Bigleaf Maple is also valued in commercial industries. It is perfect for medium to heavy-duty applications, thus used widely in the manufacture of veneer and other lumber products. Follow nature’s rhythm with Acer macrophyllum, a tree offering dense, green canopy during spring and summer and a picturesque sight of fall colors during autumn; a perfect addition to any landscape.
