Tree Identification 2

Postby Dysgwr » 10 Sep 2013, 14:27

Hi all,

Some time ago I planted some seeds with my children, which I thought were apple and/or orange. However now the trees have started to grow quite a bit when I look at them they don't seem to agree with the pictures or descriptions in my tree identification books.

Could anyone help on identifying this tree (I've made a separate post for the other tree I cant identify)

This is definately the one I thought to be a citrus but the leaves don't look quite as I'd expect.

Many thanks in advance.

It looks very like what we call box-elder in America, actually a kind of maple. But how you ended up with seeds of it is a good question. If it IS box elder, it will grow easily outside in any place, though it might need a bit of added moisture in Spain. They often call it a weed tree in the USA.

Did you not know?’--Tolkien
