Tree Identification Help
« on: July 27, 2017, 04:02:17 pm »
Hi Everyone!

If anyone could help id these trees I would appreciate it.  I'm searching for trees to put in the front yard of our new home.  I'd like one of those trees to be this tree.  The backstory is that several years ago prior to my dad's passing we were riding together and passed by these trees during the fall.  They had a beautiful red color (it may have been yellow, but almost certain it was red) and he said he "wanted to know what those trees are because they are boootyful (as he would say). 

Unfortunately, I don't have a picture.. only a location.  Your help is greatly appreciated.  Check the link below... it's the trees behind the fence (there are several in a line).  The link goes to google maps.

Most likely anything, but, a nursery would be a place to start.  I assume Florida, so it could be a fruit tree, or chinese tallow.

My apologies. This is at the border of southwest Georgia leading into Florida just above Tallahassee.

Hi new neighbor!  :)  When you plant that tree, give it plenty of room. It will get bigger than those in the pic.  ;)
