The Hedge maple (Acer campestre) also called a Field maple after its Latin name, is a slow growing medium-size and low-branched shade tree. It is often used as street tree and pruned for growing hedges. It is native to much of Europe and parts of Asia. The leaves of the hedge maple are densely arranged opposite along the twigs. They have 5 lobes with the two lobes closest to the stem smaller than the three upper lobes. The leaves turn yellowish in the fall. The trunk is light brown with grey branches.
