tree recommendations? I'm a newbie!
Hi folks! This forum is a godsend! I've been perusing for an hour now and guess it's time for me to join to get more info.
I live on an acreage W of High River (35 minutes south of Calgary.) The soil is dry and there's a lot of wind. I am looking for a tall narrow hardy tree, fast growth, drought resistant. Our house faces SE so the area will get a LOT of sun.
What would you recommend? The tree will be along the house in front of the parking pad (which is gravel.) I'm a little unsure about what to plant to reduce the likelihood of damage to the foundation. I don't mind suckers or raking leaves (I have two 35 yr old poplars so that's old news.)
Does anyone have a recommendation? Thanks so much!
