One of the first trees to bloom in spring. This species has red to yellowish flowers in clusters. The bark of young trees is very smooth but becomes rough with age. It is also notable for its brilliant orange and red fall foliage color. Songbirds, including Finches, Grosbeaks, and Nuthatches feed upon the floating helicopter-like seeds (samaras).
