Description: ​​The Norway maple is one of the most planted landscape trees in Minnesota. The MN DNR lists Norway maple as an invasive species. It can become quite aggressive in areas when it escapes. It can out complete native plants and its canopy is so dense that turf grass has a hard time surviving under it.
