The Q&A Archives: Trees

Question: Please recommend...

... any tree that is approx. 7 feet wide, drought tolerant in full sun, and would look well lined along the side of a 70 foot driveway that is not a crape myrtle

... a tree or shrub with more of a columnar look ( no wider than 3-4 feet and no taller than 8-10 feet) that would draw your eye up a little in 2 spots when interspersed along the back of a house with perennials and a vegetable garden

Thank you so much for all of your quick and insightful responses.
