That's interesting, do you think the site is exaggerating? Just curious. Norways do seem very shade tolerant compared to American species, here in Pennsylvania it's not rare to see a Norway sapling 1-foot tall doing very well in complete shade.


Sounds like a neat tree, do you think you post a pic? :)
i'll see what I have, and scan one in if I find a good shot (the last time I was on campus I was still shooting film)
hmm i bet I can find some post online from others let me see and:

here is a very small photo of the base trunk:

The exotic earthworms could also be one factor helping the Norway maple invasion. Lee?
