Shade Tree Replacement
We have to replace a mature fruitless Mulberry (roughly 20 ft)due to tree rot/decay and heavy lean. We had a secondary branch come down by itself last week of fairly good size. An arborist suggested we replant with Carolwood. We want a fast grower that has a high canopy so kids can play underneath and non-invasive roots as the Mulberry has wrapped all around our main water line from street near sidewalk about 10 feet away. Wasn't thinking evergreen per se, but not having to rake leaves is nice :) Location is middle of lawn so on main sprinkler system and water is not an issue, particularly when getting established in these hot summer months.
