Which tree to choose?
Afternoon all, I'm pondering buying a tree for a friend (non gardener).
-s/t getting fairly large/wide (size of a mature elder) but not huge (oak or walnut).
-Useful for wildlife - heavy flowering - but not a fruit tree
-low maintenance and unfussy (as he's not a gardener).
-It would be used for gently screening houses behind.
-there are lots of elders around, so s/t different - though it would fit the bill
It's a quite a specific list. Any thoughts?
