Pistacia chinensis 

Pistacia chinensis 

A lovely small to medium-sized tree, grown predominantly for its graceful pinnate leaves that can produce stunning orange-red tones in autumn. Tough enough for use in difficult areas in streets and perhaps underutilised for parks, gardens and urban plantings.
