If it is directly describing a noun, an adjective doesn't take the plural form:

  • A magas, széles, szép fák. - The tall, wide, beautiful trees.

If, however, it's being described as a quality (for example, if in English it is after the word "are"), then it takes the plural form:

  • Ezek a fák magasak, szélesek és szépek. - These trees are tall, wide, and beautiful.

Could you also say a magas epületek újak?

If so, why is Újak first in the sentence? Emphasis?

Although maybe not a sentence one would use often, could it mean "Are the new ones tall buildings?"
