Aceraceae -- Maple family

    Ronald P. Overton

        Boxelder (Acer negundo) is one of the most  widespread and best known of the maples. Its other common names  include ashleaf maple, boxelder maple, Manitoba maple, California  boxelder, and western boxelder. Best development of the species  is in the bottom-land hardwood stands in the lower Ohio and  Mississippi River valleys, although it is of limited commercial  importance there. Its greatest value may be in shelterbelt and  street plantings in the Great Plains and the West, where it is  used because of its drought and cold tolerance.
