This tree maintains a narrow, columnar form. It is reportedly slow to establish.
It develops brilliant yellow fall color, but in my area we usually have strong winds just as it is starting to color and it drops all its leaves while they are still greenish-yellow. My 2014 photo was taken the day before the wicked wind and leaf drop.
