Eddie,

I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you.

There are many great trees for you area and it really comes down to what you like and what your landscape needs aesthetically.

The following web sites have good information on trees to plant and how to plant a tree. Use the soil from the site without adding compost in the planting hole.
