With a rich history of symbolism, the Japanese maple tree has played an important part in art, gardening and even poetry for hundreds of years. This variety of tree is considered a symbol of grace personified and is associated with peace and serenity of the world’s elements. Maple trees are a symbol of strength and endurance.
