Norway Maple (Acer platanoides) is a deciduous tree, growing to 20-30 m (65-100 ft) tall with a trunk up to 1.5 m (5 ft) in diameter, and a broad, rounded crown. The bark is grey-brown and shallowly grooved. Unlike many other maples, mature trees do not tend to develop a shaggy bark. The Leaves are 5-lobed, green in the spring and summer but turning bright yellow, orange or brown in autumn. In spring scented yellow flowers in conspicuous clusters on bare branches. The winter buds are shiny red-brown.
