There’s a lot to love about the sugar maple. It’s a tree that provides us with delicious syrup for pancakes and lumber for handsome furniture. But it will give any yard the chance to be the talk of the neighborhood in fall, with its brilliant blaze of bright orange-red foliage. It’s no wonder that four states (New York, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Vermont) claim it as their state tree.

Grown for their shade and their ornamental appearance, the tuliptree is a fast-growing, pest-resistant landscaping tree. It blooms with tulip-shaped flowers in May and June, and come fall, treats homeowners to brilliant yellow leaves.

The sweetgum is a showstopper of a shade tree, with its glossy green leaves that turn from yellow to dark red, and even purple in the coldest of winters. The sweetgum is famous for its seed pods, which some enjoy using as a holiday ornament—while others see them as a headache to clean up. The latter will be glad to know that the ‘rotundiloba’ variety doesn’t grow those spiky little balls.

Northern Red Oak

The northern red oak comes as advertised, showing off dark red foliage in late autumn. Its leaves turn color later in the season than many other trees, and stay on the branch longer, so those hoping to enjoy the fall season for as long as possible, will enjoy this specimen.

But come fall, it continues to shine in the garden with radiant color, some varieties bursting forth with multicolored leaves, or exotic hues like dark pink.

Once they drop, the tree's attractive bark stands out against the winter landscape. This tree is hardy, and will adapt to a wide range of soils, growing best in zones 4–11.
