Horse Chestnut
Big Tooth Maple

Horse Chestnut is a medium sized deciduous tree that is native to Greece but has been grown in North America for hundreds of years. It produces large nuts.

Big Tooth Maple is a versatile, cold hardy maple variety that is ideal for small landscapes. It has high ornamental appeal due to its striking red-gold autumn foliage and multi-stemmed form.

Big Tooth Maple is highly deer resistant and drought tolerant as well. Keep in mind the size and form of this tree can vary due to climate, moisture, and growing conditions. In drier spots, you’ll notice Big Tooth Maple is more shrub like. In moist, full sun conditions, this tree can grow to be up to 50 ft tall. Plan your site accordingly.
