These deciduous trees are tall and fast-growing. In North America, they are the most widely dispersed tree. They are great in rural areas because they have large root systems. They have triangular-shaped leaves that provide beautiful colors in the fall. The bark is creamy white to a light olive-gray color. They are a lovely addition to any large open area.
