Silver Maple – Identifying

Q: I have a maple in my front yard, but am not sure what kind. I remember that you mentioned how weak the Silver Maple is, and I want to be prepared if that’s what I have. How do I identify my tree?

A: Leaves with silver backsides and a stinky smell from broken twigs are the clues I use to identify a silver maple. However, if those two characteristics don’t match your tree, check out this Maple Identification site, to really figure it out.
