This is a landscape tree in someone's yard I thought was beautiful.
Can anyone identify?
It is in the Willamette Valley Oregon.

I was so enamored with the beautiful leaves I completely forgot to get a picture of the bark *Blush*

Fagus sylvatica purpurea...a purple leafed Beech tree.

The tiny fluffy things are the flowers!
Separate male and female.
In the autumn you will get the seeds called beech masts.
