Title: Height diameter relations of maple street trees
Author: Nowak, David J.
Source: Journal of Arboriculture. 16(9): 231-235.
Description: Height and diameter measurements were taken for silver, sugar and Norway maple street trees in Rochester and Syracuse, New York. Mature silver maples proved to be the tallest of the three species. Average sugar maple height was consistently taller than Norway maple height until diameters reached 28 inches. Average mature tree height for all three species level off in the mid to upper 70-foot range. Tree age estimates were derived from the literature. After about the age of 35 years, silver maples appear to dominate the maples in terms of tree height. Height-diameter and heightapproximate age curves are given.
