Discover the unique beauty of the Quercus acerifolia, also known as the Mapleleaf Oak. This rare North American species of trees in the beech family is endemic to the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas. With broad, dark green leaves that resemble those of the sugar maple, it is a medium-sized deciduous tree that reaches up to 50 feet in height at maturity. Its leaves, which appear palmately lobed at first glance, feature a pinnately 5-lobed venation with the two middle lobes being larger than the other three. The Mapleleaf Oak is threatened by habitat loss, making it a rare find. With insignificant yellowish-green flowers in separate male and female catkins that appear in early spring as the leaves emerge, and producing good red fall color, it is a unique and beautiful addition to any landscape. Add the Mapleleaf Oak to your collection and enjoy its rare beauty for years to come.
