Looking for a unique and striking tree to add to your landscape? Consider Acer saccharum ssp. leucoderme, also known as the Chalk Maple or Whitebark Maple. Native to the southeastern United States, this deciduous tree thrives in moist, rocky soils along river banks, ravines, woods, and cliffs. While generally rare, it can be found commonly in the inner coastal plain and Piedmont regions of Georgia. The Chalk Maple boasts beautiful white bark that peels in thin, papery layers, providing interesting texture and visual appeal throughout the year. Its leaves turn a vibrant yellow, orange, or red in the fall, adding a pop of color to any yard. Don't miss out on the opportunity to add this eye-catching tree to your landscaping.
