Need help picking a tree
I am trying to pick out a tree for my fairly arid CO yard. We are attempting to screen out a rather unsightly apartment building that is behind our house, but not screen off the beautiful view of Pikes Peak. For that to happen, it needs to be 15-20 ft tall. It would have access to moderate water, as the lawn would be watered regularly.
I am choosing between an Autumn Brilliance Serviceberry, a Crimson Cloud Hawthorn, or a Prairie Fire Crabapple. We like the idea of spring flowers and fruit. Which would you choose?
