Hello Maple

Fellow Certified Aesthetic Pruner Yuki Nara will often refer to Laceleaf Maples that are related to the entrance of a home or garden as a “Hello Maple” or even a “Goodby Maple”.  This is what they seem to say to you as you come or go.  This Laceleaf Maple in San Mateo Highlands definitely says “Hello!” With spring pruning complete it is all set for the summer to greet people at the front door with grace and a few dramatic shadows on the rock below.
