Paperbark maple (Acer griseum) or paperbark maple is the newest of maples to catch on in landscape planting even-though introduced into the United States in 1901. It is said to be one of the most beautiful maples. Acer griseum is one of those rare maple species with trifoliate leaves. The birch-like bark exfoliates as it ages. Being difficult to propagate, several hybrids are being developed from cuttings (it tends to root relatively easily). The tree is not an inexpensive purchase.
