Trees...of the Mid-Atlantic States

Franklinia, possibly extinct in the wild, a native American tree in bloom at Longwood Gardens
We often walk right pass them. Here in central Wisconsin decent trees are a rarity and can be grouped into genus fairly quickly due to the small number represented.

One of 

Swamp magnolia at Winterthur

Tall and straight, we have so few similar trees here.

Tricolor beech espaliered on a stucco wall at Chanticleer

One of the largest dogwood, cornus florida, I have ever seen.

The oldest sycamore at Hagley Mills, the lower trunk does not even appear sycamore-like, similar to how old white pine change their bark as they age.
