Hi All,

I walked along Piedmont Avenue in Oakland (in California) and saw this tree with flaming red leaves. Can someone please tell me what tree is this? Much appreciate.

It's an ornamental pear of some sort - probably a Pyrus calleriana cultivar.

Their knock-down beautiful spring and fall display is why it's so difficult to influence people NOT to plant them.
