It’s National Tree Week and today we’re showing some love for a graceful little tree, often prized for its striking leaves.
Japanese Maple Tree:
The Japanese Red Maple tree is commonly known as ‘Bloodgood’ as it was born in the Bloodgood Nursery in Long Island, New York, rather than in Japan where most Japanese Maples originate from.
The tree is well-known for its ornamental layered look and elegance in almost any landscape. The trees feature star-shaped leaves which are green throughout the summer before transitioning to copper, orange, yellow or a striking red colour in autumn, which is probably the brightest red colour of any tree.
