Comfort Maple Conservation Area


Comfort Maple Conservation Area is a quaint 0.5 acre property within the heart of the Niagara Peninsula. It is a popular spot for birdwatching, picnicking, and exploring what is believed to be the oldest Sugar Maple tree in Canada. The property was originally owned by the Comfort family in the early 1800s, but was later handed over to the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority in order to protect this historic biological gem. The tree was estimated to be 441-541 years old. It towers over 24 m (80 feet) tall and spans an impressive 6 m (20 feet) around! Under the Ontario Heritage Act, the Comfort Maple tree was designated as a heritage tree in the year 2000.
