Image of organism
Permanent unique identifier for this particular organism:


This tree is located on Magnolia Lawn, in the middle of the "triangle" formed by two sidewalks and Magnolia Circle across from the Mayborn Building.

Unlike silver maple, the lobes of sugar maple leaves have smooth margins.  The winged fruits of sugar maple are of equal size.  The bark of large sugar maple trees is very distinctive.  It is gray, with vertical plates that are raised at the edge.

Sugar maples are a common tree in this area and are found in a wide variety of habitats. They are one of the most common trees on the Vanderbilt campus.

This tree is described on p. 87 of The Trees of Vanderbilt.
