Perhaps the second best well known tree in the northwest next to Douglas-fir, bigleaf maple grows extensively in much of the region. Its range stretches along the Pacific coast from just south of the Alaska panhandle to California where it grows in the coastal and Sierra Nevada mountains. Although it will grow on either dry or moist sites, bigleaf maple is most frequently found on disturbed sites such as those affected by fire or logging.
