An upright, narrow selection of our native musclewood/hornbeam, 'Autumn Fire' has a desirable size and shape for urban and street tree uses. Would also make a great vertical accent in mixed plantings or a tall narrow hedge for screening.  Reliable and impressive fall foliage is a bright medley of burgundy, orange, and red.
