Patio Shade Tree-Los Angeles
I recently installed a bluestone patio with a 7'x12' planter for a tree that should provide shade. I am looking for a mature tree that can be transplanted. I am concerned about root invasion as well as trees that might stain the bluestone by droping too much fruit, berries, etc. I am predisposed the multi-trunk trees. I like mature Olive trees, but I'm concerned about the fruit? I also like California Pepper trees, but I hear the roots could be problematic. What about a Cajeput tree? Tree should be at least 10'-15', but should not grow higher than 25'. Any other thoughts on a tree that can be transplanted (with a crane if necessary)and will provide shade. Also where can I possibly find one? I live in Los Angeles and need to find one asap. I would love suggestions.
