Known throughout the country for its brilliant red fall display, this eastern North American native was voted Urban Tree of the Year by the Society of Municipal Arborists in 2004! Its ability to adapt to a wide range of climate and soil conditions as well as its disease and drought tolerance no doubt contribute to its popularity. Achieving 3-4 feet per year in optimal conditions and ultimately 50-60 feet tall with half as much spread, this deciduous wonder comes with a lovely rounded crown with an upright habit. Deep watering and full sun make it particularly happy. As the name suggests, its brilliant red fall color display is nearly unrivaled. New growth is also reddish but turns green soon thereafter. It is an excellent choice for street trees and for parking lot planting.
