Aspen or birch like tree?
A total newbie here. I am looking for tree recommendations. I really, really love Aspen and Birch trees. I know Aspen are a complete no-go, but the Birch seems like it might be a possibility? I have seen some around my neighborhood. Is it a bad idea? I want to be more water wise and would love to know if there is a similar feeling tree that would be better in my area. It will be pretty much full sun, zone 9, Los Angeles foothills.
I have a whole yard to landscape. I went to the Theodore Payne CA Native nursery last weekend and my eyes and ears are open to learning more!
