indigenous from Europe to West Asia
Imposing tree with a thick, undulating crown. Crown shapes can vary with seedlings. Mature trees can reach a height of 40 m and can become 500 years of age. It has green leaf buds which is strikingly different from A. platanoides which has red leaf buds. The decorative grey trunk flakes off in small pieces. The leaf stalk does not contain milky sap, an important difference with A. platanoides. The leaf is green on top, the underside is grey pilose. Autumn colour is golden yellow, but not as beautiful as A. platanoides. The wings of the nutlets are in a right to acute angle in relation to each other. Those of A. platanoides are in a wide angle. Deep rooting. Tolerant to wet and cold soils, can not stand in water for a long time. Suitable for industrial estates and coastal areas. Slightly sensitive to salt for icy roads.
