Tree reccomendations for specific sized area in South Texas
I was wanting to get some input for what kind of trees would be good for a new bed.
In my backyard (we have a wrap around garage) most of the area is concreted in. I recently had some of the concrete removed along the fence, approximately 24'x 3 1/2'. There used to be a huge ash tree but it recently was taken down in a storm, I also used to have really tall chaflera (sp?) trees that were killed in a freeze last winter and now I have not a single tree in the back yard and I am wanting to plant some nice trees in this new area. What trees would you recommend for a bed of this size? The bed backs up to a fence. I am looking for some height and shade would be nice too but I don't think a really large canopy would be a good idea because I am looking at plant several trees in this area. Possibly one tree with a larger canopy along with several other small canopied trees? What are you envisioning? I am in Portland, Texas which is right next to Corpus Christi. Thank you for your help!
