Shopping for Trees


There are so many factors that lead us in tree selection. I love the London Plane Tree because of it's bark detail. If you are looking for interesting branch structure, try a dogwood. Red Maples have the best Fall color and Redbud has amazing Spring flowers. Pear trees grow quickly and crap apples remain small.
Assess the needs of your site and pick a tree that is not only practical but also reads to your individual aesthetic. This London Plane Tree would look fabulous by a grey stucco home due to it's muted color range. From a distance, the bark would blend in with the house and the branches would appear to be floating. Love it.
