This is a tree that my wife's best friend, Lee, gave to us years ago when she lived in Winston-Salem. I always ask her it's name and I reliably forget it. It was 12 inches tall when I planted it and is now abour 30 feet tall. Every Spring it loses, or exfoliates it's bark. I exfoliated years ago so I can sympathize. The new bark is a fresh green and slowly fades to a greyish magenta. There are two close-ups below.
