negundo has leaves that are divided into 3 to 7 leaflets and it is the
only one of the ten Canadian species of maple that has compound (divided)
leaves. The tree is a rather untidy shape branching near the ground and
producing crooked limbs and an uneven mass of foliage. A tree bears either
male or female flowers which have no petals and grow in loose clusters. The
fruit is a pair of seeds each with a papery wing.
