Question: I live in zone 5 in Western New York. I'm looking for one or two shade trees to put alongside the northern side of my house. I would like a dense shade tree for my picnic area. I don't want it very tall though just one that a 6ft2
Answer: I would plant a Norway maple, Liquidambar (sweet gum), or a Little Leaf Linden in the area. All have nice canopies to provide summer shade. Enjoy!
