Best Shade Tree for Denver Lawn?
Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a good shade tree in Denver. It would be on the south side of the house in the middle of about a 30x40ft lawn. Looking for something that can shade the grass and also hopefully the house later to help with AC. It's a rental property so I'm looking for something low maintenance and hopefully disease/insect resistant and that won't get destroyed from heavy snows. The faster growing the better. The guy at the nursery recommended either an Autumn Blaze Maple or an Autumn Purple Ash. What do you guys think?
