Description:

An excellent street and shade tree with dense dark green foliage, tough and rugged, maintains a consistent shape without pruning; an optimal character choice for larger landscapes

Ornamental Features

Emerald Queen Norway Maple is bathed in stunning corymbs of lemon yellow flowers along the branches in early spring before the leaves. It has dark green foliage throughout the season. The lobed leaves turn yellow in fall. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

Landscape Attributes

Emerald Queen Norway Maple is a dense deciduous tree with a shapely oval form. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other landscape plants with finer foliage.

This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and should only be pruned in summer after the leaves have fully developed, as it may 'bleed' sap if pruned in late winter or early spring. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Emerald Queen Norway Maple is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Shade

Planting & Growing

Emerald Queen Norway Maple will grow to be about 50 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 40 feet. It has a high canopy with a typical clearance of 7 feet from the ground, and should not be planted underneath power lines. As it matures, the lower branches of this tree can be strategically removed to create a high enough canopy to support unobstructed human traffic underneath. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live to a ripe old age of 100 years or more; think of this as a heritage tree for future generations!

This tree should only be grown in full sunlight. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
