Caption: Paperbark maple trunk. Close-up of the trunk of a paperbark maple (Acer griseum). The bark of this tree peels away in paper-thin strips during winter, revealing an attractively coloured surface of reds and browns, as seen here. This process is known as exfoliation. A native of central China, the paperbark maple is now grown almost worldwide as an ornamental.
