BIG LEAF MAPLE

Maybe the most beautiful tree in Philomath.  Huge, with a mossy trunk and wide spreading limbs, this native Oregon maple graces the northeast corner of the cemetery.  In summer, the leaves (the largest of any maple species) offer deep, cooling shade, and in fall the colors are extravagant and spectacular.
