One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

If I had to choose a tree to lose, this one would have been near the bottom of my list, Cladrastis Kentuckia
The Yellowwood by the road in Fern Valley is coming down. Security noticed yesterday, that it was leaning; Kevin and Michael inspected it and decided it was structurally compromised to such a degree that it needs to be removed. Sad. Even in the gloom of late afternoon, the sawdust is distinctively sulfur yellow.
