A great American native tree known for its large majestic size, and multi-color bark. It is a much loved tree with great historic interest, and has strong winter and all season appeal. This is a large beautiful fast growing shade tree commonly seen along stream banks and in low areas. It does need regular moisture to establish itself. These trees are often grown in tree lines to create impressive lines of the majestic trees. This year's crop is growing very straight and are quite amazing. Customers considering these trees should buy now. Highly recommended tree!
