Copper Beech Tree (Fagus sylvatica purpurea).  This is a stately ornamental tree with a pyramidal growth habit when young, maturing to a rounded outline.  The foliage emerges coppery purple and matures dark maroon.  It is an ideal tree for providing shade, and the smooth gray bark is a great characteristic feature..
