Norway maple is a native European tree commonly cultivated in countries and regions with harsh winters. It is one of the most common street and park in Czech and Slovak republics. Its tolerance against pollution, low winter temperatures, and vigorous growth made it a useful tree for almost all places where rapid growth is required for screening and as a noise barrier.Columnare is a slender form of Norway maple with deciduous, 10-15 cm across, broadly palmate leaves that are green in summer and turn golden orange and bright yellow in autumn. The crown is very narrow – only about 3m wide in 15-20 years, and rather dense. Pruning is usually not required but can be done in frost-free periods of winter or in late autumn.
Norway maple grows in any soil in full sun and is fully hardy to min. -34°C (USDA zone 4). Lower pH will ensure richer autumn colouring. Pest and disease free.
