                     Norway Maple
• Norway maple trees are native to the
  Pyrenees to the Ural Mts, from
  Scandinavia to Italy.
• They prefer cool deep soils, however,
  they are very adaptable to clay, sand,
  acid and calcareous soils. They are
  easy to plant and are very adaptable.
  They tolerate heat, drought and
  pollution.
• They have been overused and have
  spread into our forests, crowding out
  our native species. Best used in
  difficult areas where nothing else will
  grow. They are good in parks, schools
  and commercial sites. They emit toxins
  from the roots which cause grass to
  die, so be sensitive when planting on   Corner of Leeland & Woodmere
  residential lawns.
