Common Names: Striped maple, moosewood, moose maple
More of a shrub than a tree. It is a small deciduous tree growing to 5 to 10 m tall, with a trunk up to 20 cm diameter. The young bark is striped with green and white, and when a little older, brown. The leaves are broad and soft, 8 to 15 cm long and 6 to 12 cm broad, with three shallow forward-pointing lobes.
Striped maple is an understory tree of cool, moist forests, often preferring slopes.
