Cretan Maple

Photo of fruits of the Cretan Maple, Acer sempervirens. This deciduous, rather small sized tree, grows in mountain areas (over 200 m of altitude) In autumn its leaves have an impressive red or yellow color. Its fruits (samara) have a flattened wing attached, that helps them spread by the wind.
