Yellow-wood grows 35 to 75 feet tall and bears hanging clusters of white flowers. The tree may be covered with flowers only every second or third year. Yellow-wood is hard to transplant, prefers a rich, moist soil, has a moderate growth rate and yellow fall color. The tree has brittle wood and multistemmed trees may need bracing. Remove lower branches when the tree is young to prevent formation of a short trunk. The tree bleeds profusely when pruned in spring.
