The Comfort Maple lives in a small parkette that can be found just off Metler Rd in Pelham. It grows on a small part of the land purchased by the Comfort family in 1816 and much later entrusted to the Niagara Region Conservation Authority to preserve and protect its historic and biological significance.
Ken believes this tree is truly an example of Darwin’s magic at work. Witness the seed he holds in his hand.
