What is your favorite autumn tree?

What is your favorite autumn tree? Mine changes on a daily basis, but my current favorite has to be sassafras, Sassafras albidum. I like trees like sassafras and sweetgum that display many colors in a single tree.

Sassafras is a great urban tree in fairly large spaces such as parks. It reproduces from root sprouts, so one tree will lead to many.
