Points of interest

A field maple is a thermophilic tree or a bush reaching up to 20 m high. It grows in valleys as well as hilly areas. Its wood is the hardest one of all the maples growing in our lands. Wind instruments, pipes and sticks are made out of it. Some field maples create corky bark on their tree rings (similarly to spindles or elm trees) which thanks to their bad taste protect the tree from browsing.
