The most commonly known are maple, oak, linden and pear, but it also include the elm, honeylocust and willow.
Most popular is a maple called Autumn Blaze, a cross between silver maple (fast growth) and red maple (fall color). It will tolerate different soils and a little more water.
“Shade” is what is says, so placement relative to the afternoon sun is important.
