Trees to line roadway
I have approx 400 ft of road frontage, and would like to line the roadway with trees for privacy and reducing noise. One of my choices is the October Glory Maple, but I would like to alternate with a tree that provideds spring color. I'm aware of the issues with flowering pears and was wondering if there is another choice that would provide good color, preferably white, that would work well in combination with the maple. Would the Sweet Bay Magnolia be a good choice? The soil is mostly grey heavy clay, but I have predug holes approx 6'x6'x4' and backfilled with good topsoil and some of the original clay mixed in. Also, the area is full sun and I'm located in extreme southern Arkansas.
