The Field maple is a small tree which can be planted in hedgerows or be kept clipped to form a tidy hedge. It has small, maple-like leaves which turn yellow in autumn. It is resistant to cold and wind and is very suitable as a fast-growing  shelter-belt tree. It is often planted along roadsides because of its adaptability and relatively compact size - maximum height is 15-20 metres. Although sometimes regarded as a native tree, it is in fact native to Northern Europe and Southern England. It prefers moist, fertile soil and sun or light shade. Plant 2-3 plants per metre to form a hedge. 3-4ft tall plants in a 1.5-2L container. Please note: items displayed on this website may not be in stock in each of our shops.
