#2 Red Pointe® Red Maple

Brilliant red fall color plus upright, broadly pyramidal form make this red maple a stand out. The refined form and foliage of the best Acer rubrum cultivars combine wit the faster growth rate normally found in Acer x freemanii. A straight and dominant central leader results in strong branch angles that make it easier to grow. Height: 45' Spread: 30' Download Spec Sheet


#3 Wildfire® Blackgum

Warn your neighbors not to call 911, because this stunning shade tree will seem to burst into flames—not just once, but twice a year! Wildfire Black Gum pushes out fiery red leaves in spring which turn a cool green in the summer months, only to become ablaze again in fall. A single specimen in your yard will glow like a bonfire, and a row of trees lining your driveway or property line will become a breathtaking firestorm of red. This magnificent native tree isn’t one of those “live fast and die young” types, but is in it for the long haul, and many generations will be able to enjoy the show because of your wise choice.
