What is tree of the month?

Acer nikoense – Nikko maple

Nikko maple

Why is it tree of the month?

For late autumn colour, when this species performs, it performs very well. A trifoliolate leaved maple from Japan, closely related to Acer griseum, which can also be stunning well into November.

Where can I find it?

Good examples can be found on Main Drive and in Acer Glade in the Old Arboretum. We will be adding plants from wild collected seed in the next few years.
