Invasive Maples? Please help identify ...
Just wondering if anyone can help identify these maples. Both of these trees are growing near our yard. Not sure if one or both are Norway maple or not.
Tree One (the leaf on the left) doesn't appear to be producing seed pods at the moment, although it's hard to tell because this tree has a lot of English ivy and poison ivy growing up its trunk and it's difficult to get very close to the tree.
Tree Two (the leaf on the right) is producing seed pods right now (early August). It's leaves are a lighter green than Tree One.
Didn't see any milky sap when I plucked the leaves off.
Can't recall either of their fall colors at the moment.
There was a third tree in this area that our town cut down that the tree cutters said was a Norway maple.
One or both of these trees is having lots of babies all over. The two trees are close together, so it's hard to tell which tree is making the saplings, but I think it's Tree One.
If anyone can help identify, thanks in advance!
