Fairly fast grower with a loose crown that eventually reaches a maximum height of approx. 30 m. Young trees have smooth, grey bark, but older trees have regular, shallow grooves. Young twigs are smooth and olive green, often reddish brown on the top and side facing the sun. The leaves are remarkably large and taper to an abrupt point at the top. The base of the leaf is a slanted heart shape and the edge is sharp and roughly serrated. The upper side of the leaf is dark green while the underside is light green. Starting in July, umbels of aromatic, pale yellow flowers appear. The individual flowers are approx. 1.2 cm in diameter, the bract is pale yellow and approx. 11 cm long. T. americana has many deep lateral roots and is rarely used as an avenue or street tree because of its broad crown.
