Best Shade Trees For Tight Spaces?
I was looking at only evergreens, but I think my choices are too limited, so I am going to be open to other choices.
I was looking at Little Gem Magnolia and Photinia standard for evergreens.
I'm looking for trees for zone 8/9 that will fit in a 4x4 land area bordered by hardscape on one side and fencing on the other that will provide hot weather shade, There is more space for the tree to grow branches outward once it is over the 6 ft fence, but the land area for the trunk/roots is limited.
I'm looking for trees that will max out under 25 feet of height and not drop berries or other messy items onto the flagstone patio and are in general "low maintenance."
