Hello

first time user of these forums. I’m trying to identify this plant in my garden. It started off as quite a small what I thought was a weed. I kind of liked the look of it so i let it live. Now its over 10ft tall and a potential problem, as you can see, its grown from the cracks between my/neighbors fence

I’d like to move it if I can (assuming the neighbours don’t mind) any tips/hints on how to keep it alive if i do so? Or is it probably not worth the effort…

thanks all :)

This is Field Maple (Acer campestre), the only Maple native to the British Isles.

Successfully transplanting a volunteer seedling tree is a hit-or-miss proposition... However if you are going to take it out anyway, why not give it a try. I recommend transplanting during dormancy in Winter.

Thanks Marck I’ll wait until Winter :)
