Another Tree question
OK here is another tree question for you all. I have a very long driveway coming up to my house from the road. Because it's at an angle, I'm guessing around 700 ft or a little more from the road to my parking area. I want to put in some nice trees, preferably flowering, down the sides of the drive to really give a nice definition to the driveway. All I have seen are Bradford Pears in similar plantings. They are beautiful, outstanding in early spring but I've not been happy with them. I had them at my last house and they ended up snapping and breaking in summer thunderstorms. Any recommendations on a nice tree, a little more durable that will give a similar appearance to the Bradford Pear? I've been kicking around a flowering crabapple as a possibility, maybe even dogwood. Suggestions????
