A Remarkable sugar maple

Tree Information
Common Name: sugar maple
Scientific name: Acer saccharum
Category: Community tree
Notes: This tree produces beautiful red and yellow leaves in the autumn and has been around at least for some time. It is treasured by many in the Chester area, to the extent where it affected the planning for widening Route 10 in Chester; they simply widened the road instead of constructing new roads which would have uprooted the tree. This tree is unique because of its proximity to busy highways, but I think it also fits the "community tree" description.
