Nature Walk: Silver Maple Samaras
“Silver maples are one of the most common species of maple found in the eastern U.S. They are fast growing trees, thus widely planted in towns and native to bottomlands along streams and rivers. The fruits or seeds are called samaras. After they mature and fall from the trees, they are a food source for critters such as chipmunks and squirrels.” – Carl Kurtz
