American Yellowwood (Cladrastis lutea)

This is one of my personal favorites. The tree is medium in size at maturity around 40 feet in height and equal spread. The form of growth s typically multi- stemmed originating at one stump. The flowers are born in panicles, and are creamy white in color. Flowering occurs in May. The tree makes a fine specimen for the landscape. Yellowwood can also be used as park trees and along streets with wide tree lawn areas. The species also fits well on a small property. The wide canopy will provide adequate shade for a patio or play area. One point of interest is the bright yellow wood from which the name is derived. Insect and disease pests are few.
