        Utah Native Plants | Bigtooth Maple: Red Leaves

        Bigtooth maple (Acer grandidentatum) is often found along streams and in drainages in the foothill region. "Bigtooth" refers to the deeply lobed leaves of these trees. It is also called canyon maple or western sugar maple. Deer and livestock eat the twigs and leaves. Native people used bigtooth maple for flavoring. The image is drawn from the collection of Utah Native Plants contributed by the Red Butte Garden and Arboretum, University of Utah.
