North Museum, 400 College Avenue, Lancaster PA

With a trunk circumference of 103 inches, a height of 47.3 feet, and a spread of 60 feet (measured in 2011), this multistem tree is the second largest Hedge Maple in the entire state. Togther with the Blue Atlas Cedar (Cedrus atlantica), these are the two African trees that are most likely to be found in Lancaster County.   (A. campestre is also native to Asia and Europe).

This amazing species is very high in wildlife value: Birds and small mammals eat the seeds; bees love the nectar and pollen of its flowers; many species of moth eat the leaves as caterpillars; aphids are attracted to its leaves; and aphid predators (such as the beloved ladybug) are thus attracted to it as well.
