Can you suggest an ornamental tree for my front yard that is hardy enough for the Baltimore Maryland area and has pretty fall foliage. I've had to remove a Bradford Pear because of instability.

Pagoda Dogwood is a native tree with terrific fall foliage. Sycamores are colorful, as is Oxydendron arboretum (sourwood). Sourwood is a wonderful pyramidal, usually narrow, native tree with white drooping panicles of flowers that look a little like flowers of pieris. It has fantastic red fall color. Hope one of these suggestions works for you!
