Native in the Pacific NW. We had a stand of this established when we bought our farm, and it has steadily spread out. The suckers can be a problem, they roam far and wide. But, what a lovely sound when the wind rustles through the leaves. I get a rather dull gold in the fall, but on the colder side of our state, these trees absolutely shine.
