Many of you have seen this Maple before, this photo is from 2008 but I plan on showing a fall color update later today if it stops raining outside. I purchased this tree as a cut down stump in Chicago in 1993. It was harvested from a defunct nursery. I have had some knowledgeable people tell me they think it is Bene Kawa. I think it is just plain old mountain maple stock salvaged after the scion died.
