Dwarf Tulip Trees?
We live on a river with apartments across from us. What we want to do is plant a row of trees that give us some privacy, and our intention is to trim the branches up high enough to be able to see the river without seeing the apartments. We initially were thinking about a couple large trees, but don't want to invade the lawn space that much, so instead are looking at putting in more, smaller trees that each give us about 15 feet or so of spread. One variety we have been hearing about is called a dwarf tulip tree. Does anyone have experience with those, and how quick they grow, how much it takes to maintain them, etc? If you don't recommend that tree, what would *you* recommend? Advice appreciated! We want to get whatever we choose planted this Fall.
