Native to: Iowa to Maine Crown: Upright open Height: 20 - 30 feet Width: 12 - 15 feet Growth Rate: Moderate
Characteristics: This tree has pink spring flowers that fade to attract birds. Its roots are not aggressive.
Negative Features: Low branching and multi-stemmed habit requires regular pruning to develop tree form and maintain an 8'-10' high canopy suitable for street tree use. This is a short lived tree with an urban life span of 20 years.
Uses: Good for narrow setbacks. Good for underneath wires, cul-de-sacs, and tight situations where there is little room on arterial, collector, and residential streets. Best used in limited quantity. This is a good choice when a shorter tree is necessary in order not to obscure a view.
Comments: Robin Hill is a good, improved Serviceberry cultivar. This tree is effectively used along natural areas, wetlands, ponds, and drainage channels.
