Musclewood or Blue Beech - Carpinus caroliniana
One of the prettiest small trees with smooth, fluted bark. Works great as a screen. Fall color can be red, yellow, and orange. The tree is highly adaptable to different soils. In full sun it will grow in a formal, upright character but if gown in shade it will have a more loose, informal shape.
