Norway Maples Go To Seed

Remember the Norway Maples that we looked at in April? Here we can see the self-same tree with fresh green seeds growing in the spring warmth. As kids, we’d refer to these seeds as “helicopters,” owing to their rotary flip-flip-flip motion when they come gliding to the ground.

If you’re interested, you can also revisit our exploration of the
Crimson King Norway Maple trees from the Kirkwood Preserve.


  1. Oh, I loved "helicopters" as a kid! I heard that catching a falling leaf was good luck and so I was constantly chasing falling leaves...

  2. Oh yeah - that just never gets old!
