what kind of tree to plant?

Posted by greyfox39 z7 NM (My Page) on

We live in the Rio Rancho, NM area, and want to plant a shade tree in the back yard lawn. We are NOT gardeners, and need something that is not too easy to kill, and don't want something with large leaves. It should be a fast grower, and able to withstand the watering of the lawn, and we don't want it leaking sap or cotton.

Any ideas?

Chinese pistache is a great shade tree that will tolerate lawn watering. Chitalpa would be a second choice.
