(Acer saccaharinum )
Valued at more than $97,000, this former state champion is the oldest and largest tree on campus. The species was commonly planted in the Greeley region around 1900. Because of its massive water needs it’s now a prohibited tree. Prone to storm damage, silver maples also have a very shallow root system that makes mowing a challenge.
