The Q&A Archives: Best Tree to Plant

Question: Evergreen type tree - not pine etc. - drooping branches, full sun, maybe 20-30 ft. tall, 10 - 15 ft wide. Could take one narrow and two more spread out.
Thanks, Ron

Answer: Canadian Hemlock is evergreen and has drooping branches; Chaemacyparis nootkatensis pendula (Weeping Yellow Cedar) is also evergreen with drooping branches. Both are conifers. If you'd rather have a broadleaf evergreen, consider Ulmus parvifolia, the Weeping Chinese Elm or a Eucalyptus. Hope one of these suggestions works well in your landscape.
