    I'm looking for a small-ish tree for the N side of my small lot. I would like something with fall colour . I was reading about the Douglas maple and thought it sounded like an attractive tree. Or possibly a vine maple. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks very much.
  2. Vine maple is definitely the more ornamental of the two. Douglas maple has inelegant, jaggedy leaves and generally poor fall color. Of interest primarily to natives purists and collectors.
