The Q&A Archives: which tree

Question: my wife is pregnant and wants me to plant a tree about the time she gives birth (september). we don't know our soil ph, the soil is rather rocky (hill country, nw san antonio), medium sun. any advice would be great, thanks in advance.

Answer: Jose,

I know that area and the soils there. You have several good options depending on which type of tree is most appealing to you. I might consider a Texas redbud (not the eastern type) or a Texas red oak. For lots of other ideas check out the following web site from the Austin area. The plants in it will do very well in your area too.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
