Ice damage. New Tree ??

cmoejr(KY Zone 6)February 18, 2007

I've had this maple tree in my front yard that I have hated for years. I have wanted to take it down forever but the wife didn't want me to. After the ice storm last week i have a dozen branches that came down between 4 and 8 inches in diameter. Now I'm taking it down for sure.

What would a good tree be to put back in place of it. My front yard is not that big. I would like a tree that will grow not extremly fast but maybe semi fast. I would want it to get no higher than maybe 25 - 30 feet with a similar spread. I don't want an evergreen and spring flowers makes no difference. Thank You
