This native species occurs in large parts of western and central Europe. A moderately nutrient-rich and moderately moist soil is preferred. A sunny spot is much appreciated. The Field Maple is related to the Common Maple trees.

This maple is a pioneer. If there is a gap somewhere, it will fill it in quickly. The tree is more like a large shrub that can grow between 3 and 10 meters high.

A forest edge, an old hedge on the border of two lots or on the edge of a stream are places where this maple feels 'happy'.

The yellow autumn color of the small palmate leaves is striking. Some seedlings have a clear corky texture on the branches.

This species is often used as a deciduous hedge around larger gardens. In addition, it is a commonly used species in landscaping.
