Also known as shadbush or serviceberry, amelanchier is an early flowering tree with interesting growth pattern and smooth gray bark. The early redness of the leaves heightens its striking beauty. This one is along the north branch of the  Susquehanna river in Broome County NY. We have one in our garden because we like it so well. The bloom is fleeting, marking the beginning of the greening of spring.
