Help Identify This Maple Tree

23 September 2019

“I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree.”  The verse, written by Joyce Kilmer in 1913, captures the natural beauty and simple majesty of trees.  So when one sees an old tree, it leads one to wonder about the trials and tribulations has it seen and endured over its long journey.  It becomes a monument of strength, stability and endurance, and gives some of that back to those who meditate on such things. 

There is an old unidentified majestic maple tree in the Village of Eagle Park, located at the south edge bordering the Calico Fields subdivision, that brings about such meditations.  The circumference of the tree measures 192” with a large gaping hole that has hollowed out most of its center, yet many large branches still grow and provide shelter to birds and squirrels. 

Not being professional arborists, we haven’t been able to identify whether it’s a silver maple, sugar maple or red maple, so we need your help.  Does anyone know about this tree or can anyone help identify it?  Its age could be anywhere from 180-350 years old, depending upon it’s maple species.

Please contact us if you can help by responding to this post or call us at 262-594-8961.
