  1. I just recently got to know the tree while I was walking in the Pacific Spirit Park… I’ve never seen one before in Europe and so I was interested in its identification.

    1. The Vine Maple tree is quite striking at this time of the year. It arches over the paths and creates lovely light shade. I am glad that we could help with the identification. We will be posting information about a native plant or animal from Pacific Spirit Regional Park each week on our blog.
