I had to cut down my white birch, due to a quick onset death to over 60% of the tree. It was a nice large 15 year old white birch.
But to go on...
I now need a replacement. Our house is a two story with a rather ugly and flat front exterior. I think the nice upright large birch did a nice job of softening the edge of the house. I'm thinking something that still has a somewhat upright structure...decent height, but not too wide.
The wife wants something with a bit more interest than just an appealing (
) bark. I was thinking of a Cleveland Flowering Pear. But does anyone know if it smells as awful as the Bradford?
