|My yard is 30' by 17'. In the far corner I would like to plant a tree that would eventially shade the patio and not be too much of a mess. My home is 2 story and the back yard faces east. The corner I would like to put the tree would face west and on the north side of the yard. I don't care for Palm trees.
Thanks for your help
