Introduction - Big Leaf Maple

The Big Leaf Maple Tree is the largest of all Maple Trees and one of the few species of Maple Trees that is native to the Northwest region of the United States. One interesting feature is that it has the ability to grow in a wide range of conditions; from the wet temperate rainforest zones of northern California to the warm dry climate of southern California. It tends, however, to thrive in regions where there is moist soil and plenty of shade. The tree is also known as the Broadleaf Maple and the Oregon Maple. The below facts provide information on what the tree looks like, why it is sometimes treated as a weed, who feeds off the tree, when the tree produces seeds, and more.
