There is a maple tree a block away in my neighborhood that always starts turning half red and the other half is green.  It's a helluva tree and my favorite right now as it is in it's prime

wait do u live in my neighborhood

Maybe!  I'll post a picture of the tree and we can see.

Today this is my favorite tree.  It’s a sycamore that I bought from a nursery on clearance out of season 10 years ago for $8.  At the time it was barely a stick.  Now, 10 years later, I would estimate it to be 15 feet tall or so.  But I don’t like it for it’s fall foliage…the leaves on American Sycamores just kinda turn wilty and brown.  It is my fav for 2 reasons:

1.  It sheds it’s bark like a snake sheds it’s skin and that’s kewl
2.  As you can see in the background, I live on a T-road.  My house would be where the vertical part of the T meets the horizontal part.  It’s a dead end both ways, so we get minimal traffic (if I see two cars on the same Saturday that’s a weird day).  Anyway, I strategically planted that sycamore 10 years ago at a weird angle compared to the rest of the house so when it grew up and people came down our road, when they get to the T they can’t see my front porch because of the sycamore foliage.  It has now grown to the point where I can now pee off my front porch with impunity and that’s rad

What are the ones that turn bright yellow called?  There is one at my kids school that is turning bright yellow from the top down.  What is the species?  Characteristics: pretty tall, broad leaf, turning yellow, formerly green.

One of our Maples started turning crazy red a couple falls ago and I'm not complaining.

that tree doesn't really look like it gives much cover for front yard urination, fatdamon.

Thanks. I know nothing about trees, but we completely redid our yard the year before so I'm wondering if all the extra watering caused it to go nuts?  :dunno:

It's crazy. It only takes a couple days to go completely red. Raking it up blows.

Maple trees are the crap.  I also like burning bushes, but this is a tree thread.
