Maple?

SouthCountryGuy Zone 4b-5 SE BC(Zone 4b-5 SE BC Canada)June 20, 2013

I got this tree off a job site last year and am having a hard time with an ID. I think it is possibly native but now can't find one to match. I thought it was dead but just 2 weeks ago it popped out of the ground. Is anyone in this group good at Maples?

Thanks

They could be tatarian maple...they look a little bit "fat" for that, though... I find it can be a bit hard to tell on young leaves, sometimes the shape changes as the leaves mature.

The only maples native to British Columbia are the vine, bigleaf, and douglas maples...and your tree certainly doesn't like like any one of those species. I'd second the opinion of Tatarian maple, but you may want to post some more pictures of it once the leaves get bigger -- it's sometimes difficult to identify young maple leaves due to deformities &c.

Where exactly are you in B.C.?

David,

Hope you are dry and safe in Calgary. As well as all your friends and family.

I got this from a job site in Fernie. I am still hoping the tree will start again. It was/is 10' tall.

Thanks for the help I will update this thread when it gets bigger.

Oh good CLB at least you guys are not flooded out. Water is receding here and hopefully people here will be back home today or tomorrow.
