It grows so dense that it is an excellent screen, and it will fit under power lines.
It’s native range is the Amur Valley region of NE China. Developing in this area of difficult winters and dry summers, this tree is both hardy and drought tolerant.
Once established it should need little additional watering. It is tolerant of a variety of soils, including alkaline.
It will grow in shade and tolerates salt.
Acer ginnala is pest free but is susceptible to Verticillium Wilt, as are most Maples.
