Chalk Maple

The chalk maple is showing some fantastic fall color. It's a native tree to rocky soils in east Texas. It's shade tolerance and smaller size (25 - 30 ft) makes it useful in urban gardens where it can be planted as a focal point under a high oak canopy. It has reliable fall color that ranges from bright yellow to red orange and exhibits good drought tolerance, particularly in shade. The name derives from it's interesting smooth whitish bark making it an attractive ornamental tree. We just have a couple of these left if you're interested!
