I live in southern California and have a small back yard. I would like to plant a shade tree that isnt too messy. What can you recommend?

A few of the most litter-free trees include Acacia, palms, Ensete, Cordyline and Firmiana simplex (Chinese Parasol tree). If these don't appeal to you, evergreens are generally neater than deciduous trees. Consider holly (which can be trained into a single-trunked tree), cypress or spruce.
