Looking for the perfect tree

katiekatwiOctober 15, 2009

I need help finding the perfect tree to replace the quaking aspen we cut down (due to its roots). We are looking for shade, but since we have a narrow look to our house, we would like something that is 1/2 as wide as it is tall so that it does not completely hide our house. The front yard where it is going is only about 20' wide by 15' deep. The yard faces West. We would like something that is fast growing and preferably has flowers in the Spring. Any suggestions?
