Boxelder

Boxelder (Acer negundo) is a native, fast-growing maple tree, found throughout Minnesota except for the far northeastern corner of the state .

It is most common on river floodplains and along lakeshores and streams, but also grows in young hardwood forests.

Boxelder can grow in a wide variety of soil types and spreads fast, especially in fence rows, abandoned fields and vacant or disturbed urban lots.

Yellow-green flowers add some color to spring landscapes, but boxelder is not a very popular choice, due to its low ornamental value.
