Box Elder, Maple Ash
This fast growing species of maple is the only one with compound leaves and its leaves look similar to the American Ash. Reaches a mature height of 40-50' high and can form thickets in floodplains where it is commonly found and seedlings germinate with great success in the wild. However, it is a good choice for soils where nothing else seems to grow. This species can create a nice windbreak in open areas. Acer negundo is used by many species of birds and mammals and was once used for making syrup by American Indians. Flapjacks anyone?
