The King of Trees, as many call it, is the state tree of Illinois, Connecticut and Maryland. You've surely seen many of these in parks or golf courses. Put in a yard and it will serve as the center piece of the landscape. Expected to live for hundreds of years, it can be a your family's legacy tree for years to come. Grows to be a massive and stately tree with an artistic, wide-spreading habit of growth and good fall color. Requires full sun, but provides plenty of shade underneath. It is not particular as to soil type, but has a definite preference for acidic soils. Has dark green foliage which emerges rose in spring.
