What kind of tree is best for my small yard?

Trees for Small Yards

For small yards, pick trees that will grow no more than 15-20 feet in height. An overly large tree in a small space, can present an unbalanced sense of scale.

Birch, with its lighter foliage and slender trunk is a good choice, as is Higan Cherry, Full Moon Maple and Ornamental Plum.
