Acer campestre Elsrijk is a popular cultivar of Field Maple. At maturity it could be mistaken for straight campestre but this clone retains a lovely compact, oval crown.
Named after a park in Amstelveen, Holland, where it was discovered in the 1950s.
It does best in rich, well drained soils but does well in virtually any soil type and will readily tolerate drought, soil compaction and air pollution.
This tree is particularly recommended for urban and street plantings. It's foliage will turn a wonderful clear yellow in autumn.
Mature height: 7-12m
Mature spread: 4-6m
