Hi, I've checked all my referance books and have not found a maple by that name. Maybe this is a 'common' name? Or maybe it's because I'm in a totally different location from you. There are a few things that make a tree send up ****ers. One, it could be the nature of the tree. Two, it might be a grafted tree and the ****ers look different than the rest of the tree (I've had three different grafted trees and all do the same thing). Three, the tree is experiencing stress. As far as I know, you can't do anything about one and two except cut the ****ers at the base. Sorry I can't be of more help.
