Plant Finder: about Acer campestre

Common names

Hedge maple, Field maple, Common maple, Maple


Acer campestre (Hedge maple). The leaves on this species are small, and dull green in the summer and then turn bright yellow in the autumn, out-shining many other UK native trees in colour at this time of year.


It will tolerate dry, poor sandy soils.

Interest and use

It is very useful as a pest-free hedge, for banks or a small, street tree. Grow for autumn colour.

The Field Maple was the favoured wood for medieval instrument makers and to make the drinking bowls called 'mazers'. Saxon harps were once made of Maple wood, as was made apparent from the famous discovery of the Sutton Hoo ship burial in Suffolk, UK.
