In the mixed woods of eastern North-America this species grows in the wild. Forms a medium-sized to large tree with a round to conical, open crown becoming spherical when maturing. In Europe it can reach a height of
20 m and a width of 10 m. In its original habitat it reaches almost 30 m. Striking are the pointed buds that are non-sticky. The palmate leaves usually have 5, sometimes 7, leaflets. They are up to 15 cm across. The dark green, bare leaf is thickly haired underneath at first. In autumn it colours into brown yellow and falls early. The light yellow flowers with a pink hue are short in panicles. Fruits and young outgrowth are poisonous. Good tolerance to hard surfaces, but less tolerant to salt (for icy roads).
