Meet the Maples!
How many maple species can you name that are native to North America? Most people can probably name one or two, but there are actually 13! Here’s the complete list — courtesy of the North American Maple Producers Manual produced by the Ohio State University Extension in cooperation with the North American Maple Syrup Council — in the event you really want to impress your friends with your knowledge of the mighty maple!
And while the Toronto Maple Leafs are indeed well known and native to North America, you won’t find them mentioned on this list nor are they considered the 14th maple!
