I am looking for a tree similar in form to this. Here is a picture of what I want.

Dogwoods grow too slow, I might plant one, but I want something a little faster growing for now.

I want somthing with lots of branches all the way down the tree. Horizontal, straight branches, dark brown in color. Not too stiff though, and no thorns.
Leaf color similar to the pic or slightly different. Height no more than 30 ft. The shape and branching are the most important features.

I would like something with a good annual growth rate that will be good in zone 7 or 8.

Can you think of anything?
