    Striped maple (Acer pensylvanicum) (8), also  called moosewood, is a small tree or large shrub identified by  its conspicuous vertical white stripes on greenish-brown bark. It  grows best on shaded, cool northern slopes of upland valleys  where it is common on welldrained sandy loams in small forest  openings or as an understory tree in mixed hardwoods. This very  slow growing maple may live to be 100 and is probably most  important as a browse plant for wildlife, although the tree is  sometimes planted as an ornamental in heavily shaded areas  (33,37).
