The One and Only!
Acer saccharinum is more commonly known in the United States as
silver maple. Throughout the world it is also referred to as Wager's
maple, soft maple, river maple, silberahorn, and zilveresdoorn.
This tree is found all around the La Crosse, Wisconsin, area.
Interesting fact: With the emerald ash bore destroying many of the ash trees in the area, some believe the tree that is going to take its place in the forests is the silver maple. With this possibility, our need to understand this species is more important than ever.
