We were happy that we found the Red Maple when we went outside as a group.When we went outside we saw snow and rain coming from the sky and trees all over.We were surprised that we only saw Red Maples in the juvenal stage. It was winter so there was no leaves on the trees so we could not find the Red Maple as fast.
We think we found the red maple because we saw that on the species ID card it has the buds on opposite sides. When we went out we saw a tree with buds on both sides like the species ID card and then we saw another tree with buds on it but the pattern wasn't like the ID card so we knew that we found the red maple.
We also thought that it was a red maple because on the species ID card it said that the leaves were 6-11 cm long and as you can see in the picture we measured the leave and it was 8 cm long.
