How old were the trees cut down on Doran Road in Midhurst?

The 10 to 12 Doran Road maples that were cut down last fall were 178.8 years old on average, ranging from 165 – 219.

It is also known as hard maple and is especially prized for its hardness, dense grain and light colour.

Sugar maples can live up to 400 years old. Another eight are marked for cutting down in 2012. That leaves 9 of the original 29 still standing.
