Trillium Ridge Flora and Fauna
Red Maple
Acer rubrum
Location: South side back yard
One of the most common and widespread deciduous trees of eastern North America. Iours is a really snaggly specimen crowded under the neighbor's elm. But it is beautiful in fall, and the woodpeckers like its many dead branches.
