Easier to identify if we can see the leaf shape.

Those are urban trees.

Sugar Maples commonly turn that bright yellow in Autumn...but the shape isn't right, perhaps they're pruned?

I really wouldn't be able to get the leaf shape if I don't know the tree...:) I'm impressed with the overall shape and beauty of the tree.

HAHA...that .... is funny, I want to make it a "My tree" but no limb climbing.

It's the shape that is attractive to me.

Nearby my home there is a similar tree on a farm with a winding road- the owner has a type of goats and grey sheep maybe even some llamas (lol) in the yard, and it is gated. So, I can't actually ask the owner...and they're not common here in Eastern Usa, at least to me.
Guess I should check a horticulture site. But still if anyone knows please post.
For reference ...the trees-

There are some varieties of ginkgo trees that are fairly columnar in shape, and ginkgoes turn bright yellow in the fall. I don’t think that’s what these trees are, but the ginkgo may be something you’d like.

Check out the golden tree on the right side, about 2/3 of the way down. I think some of the tree shape may be related to pruning/shaping.

If you can get a leaf from your neighbor’s tree, this would really help in identification!

I’m pretty sure they are just younger beech trees. Most young trees have that kind of shape, they are just starting to grow.

My guess is hornbeam. The shape, size and autumn coloration look about right (admittedly these are two slightly different variants):

Notice the tree has a long thin trunk, and looks conical, and well shaped by nature rather than pruning or wire. The one I referred to earlier, near me on a "sort of" farm is a lot taller. I'll try and get a pic or leaf from that one. I could just knock and ask, but he'd/they'd think I was a nut...or worse maybe they are , but I doubt either... more me than them anyway. smile.

I 'd think you might be right . Looks really the same. Still will try and get the leaf.

Without seeing the leaves, two guesses are hornbeam or parrotia. I have a parrotia in my yard with the same columnar shape and turns orange in the fall. Both types of trees get large so not sure they would be planted in the setting shown in your photo.

Scroll down a bit through this one to the 'by shape' section.

I like the parrotia, but it's not pyramid- columnar from what saw on the internet.

Those trees are not Aspens. I do not see white bark and Aspens are not as dense nor have that tight columnar shape as the trees in the photo. They have a rangier growth habit. 99% sure.

There is a variety of Parrotia that has that shape. JL Columnar, or Persian Spire.

Hi,

If you just take a decent picture of a leaf or some leafs with your mobile phone, you can use the app Plantnet, it will say what tree it is immediately. It is the final blow for the Botanists in the era of machine learning and neural networks (OK, still some Botanists were involved off course to develop the app).

I love this thread and reminds me of how some threads that go on tangents so I like to think that this thread started as "should I get a new teacher" and turned into a discussion on trees. laugh laugh laugh
