In these parts it's also known as "Moosewood" because moose like to munch
it. http://www.domtar.com/arbre/english/p_erpen.htm
The picture of the leaf is good but the larger picture does not show the
bark well which is very distinctive (vertically striped green) and makes it
easy to identify even when the leaves are gone.
