Boxelder


The Boxelder tree or Ash-leaf Maple differs from most maples by having odd-pinnate compound leaves and by being dioecious (male and female flowers born on separate plants). The Boxelder is often planted to harvest the wood for making crates and boxes or to help with erosion. Its foliage and twigs are eaten by a variety of insects, and the persistent fruits are eaten by a wide variety of birds and mammals, especially in winter when other food is in short supply. The boxelder can grow from 35-80 feet in height when mature.
