Which is the better tree for fall color?
I live in central C.A. and I live in the country. I have a big back yard and would like to plant 2 trees that will give we some fall colors. What's the better pick, Northern Red Oak or the Red Maple? The ground is clay and it will be very close to my lawn. Is one of these trees messier than the other? I have a cork oak for the main tree and would like to plant one of these on both sides of it. Thanks
