Tree of the Month

The Tree of the Month for 
January is Gymnocladus dioicus or the Kentucky coffeetree. It is native to the eastern United States. This species is known for leaving out later in the spring and yielding flower clusters that come on with the new leaves. It is a fast growing tree, putting on two to three feet annually. Coffeetrees have what’s called a bipinnately compound leaf that can grow up to three feet long by two feet wide. For more information check out the Cal Poly SelecTree website.
