I am shopping for a tree for my yard. I have tried the local government website, and it literally gives me just a list of hundreds of trees...
I have tried getting advice from local nurseries, but they simply try to sell me a tree from their current stock.
What I am hoping to find is a medium/large deciduous tree that is relatively fast growing and low maintenance (I don't mind watering it, but don't want to deal with itch bombs every year and such).
The spot where I will be planting the tree is about 20 feet from the corner of my roof. It gets full sunshine.
I already have a maple tree and a crab apple in my yard, and my next door neighbor has a Linden, so I am looking for something different in this spot.
Any suggestions, recommendations, or even advice on what to stay away from, or how to get good recommendations will be greatly appreciated!
