Points of interest: - Similar to red maple, but leaves turn yellow or brown in fall rather than red - Has smooth, gray bark when the tree is young that becomes darker and "shaggy" looking as the tree gets older - Sometimes, its trunk may be hollow, which creates space for animals and birds to live in
