This is young Nyssa sylvatica, often known as Tupelo, planted along Trimet’s new Orange Line, to my thinking, for many reasons an ideal tree here. Normally it grows with a strong central leader, branches with broad angles of attachment that remain relatively small in diameter, is deciduous with strong/flexible wood and is relatively narrow given it’s height. Its beautiful full color, resistance to drought and heavy winter wet soils are a plus.
