  • Heights can reach >150’ with a circumference >30’.

  • Leaves somewhat resemble classic maple and can be up to 9” wide.

  • Flowers are small; fruit in balls (1-2”), usually 2 in chain.

  • Bark is mottled and exfoliating. The trunk of older trees has large, warty bumps here and there.

  • Common in Portland.

  • #2 was planted beside the Sylvester Farrell house in 1880.
