Understory Tree

evenmacJuly 23, 2012

What is the best understory tree that will get some sun, some will have morning sun and some afternoon late. We are looking for a tree that will fill in under trees that are tall and losing their lower branches and one that will give us some level of privacy.

Embothrium(USDA 8 Sunset 5 WA)

Maybe Cornus alternifolia, if it never gets too hot and dry there.
