Yesterday I was outside looking for some seeds on our beautiful red Japanese maple tree. Sadly this year of 2020 has been absolutely horrible for seeds and nuts in our area. Hickory trees had very few nuts, pecans very little, and many trees with seeds had little to none! This Japanese maple usually has a few hundred, I was only able to get maybe 20! Anyway, here is a picture of what the Japanese maple seeds look like for anyone wanting to know what to look for if your looking for your first time. Our Japanese maple tree stays red nearly all growing season long.
