Maple Tree

Acer sp.


I found this maple tree in the side of the mountain. What fascinate me, is it had it's seed pods on. We get ours in Spring. Perhaps seeds won't winter over there.


Rocky terrain in Austria


I am only guess this is Maple, do not know the variety, so I need some help.

Hi alincelongmartin, It is certainly a maple tree. All maples flower and seed before their leaves come out; however, some species hang on to their seed until fall. For example, sugar maple (Acer saccharum) does not let go of its seed (aka samaras) until fall each year.
