      With huge 8—12” leaves, the Bigleaf Maple is not easily confused with any other maple. In the spring 4—6” long clusters of many, small yellow flowers hang from the ends of the twigs. By mid—summer, these clusters are replaced with chains of large, fuzzy, double—winged samaras. When grown in the open, the Bigleaf Maple will form a broad, spreading canopy and a short stout trunk. (Portland Plant List, 2016)

      The native Bigleaf Maple tree brings many delights — leaves big enough to be worn as hats, edible flower clusters, and sweet sap that can be boiled to make maple syrup. Join others in Oregon who are learning the art of Bigleaf Maple sugaring: https://www.oregonmapleproject.org
