I will be planting trees in approx. 5 months. I like the trees in the Blue Ridge Mountain areas with all of their different colors. I want these same colors in my yard!

    My favorite is the sugar maple. They have the most beautiful orange color.

    Red Maples, Sourwood, Tulip Poplar, Scarlet Oak.....how much room did you say you have?

    I'll cast another vote for the sourwood (Oxydendron arboreum). And with it you get fragrant white flowers in the spring as well. I'm always looking for multiple seasons of interest with my plant selections.

    I would go with sourwood, also tupelo (Nyssa sylvatica), red maple, sugar maple red oaks.

    I like sugar maple, sourwood, ginko, and sassafras just to name a few.

    Ginko is a lovely yellow - but get a male plant. The flower on the female plant has an overpowering odor. The leaves fall in one day. They just drop to the ground in a matter of an hour or so. American hornbeam and sugar maple are good orange colors. The gum trees in the mountains are a beautiful red but so is the sourwood. The American persimmon is also a good red foliage plant - and good to eat as well.

    Yeah, I should have said male only for the ginko. I do love their fall color and distinct leaf.

    Chinese red Maple is beautiful all seasons, green, red and purple or pink, but then you cannot beat a Maple or beautiful colors.
