Paper Bark Maple

Arbor walk #36, TreeKeeper ID #3160

A type of maple originally native to the mixed forests of Central China, this species was introduced to the west through England in 1899 and transplanted to America soon after. It has since become endangered in its native range. Its most notable characteristic is its copper colored exfoliating bark, which peels off in attractive curls and often remains on the tree instead of falling to the ground.
