Good "plant and neglect" trees?
My husband and I recently inherited a mobile home park in Indiana, S. of Indianapolis. Zone 6 I think. It had belonged to his parents. We wanted to plant a few trees around the park but will only be able to maintain occasionally, not babysit them.
We're fine with smaller trees, even seedlings, but what trees meet these guidelines:
-Fast growing and fast to establish
-Won't have huge water needs after planting
-Tolerates compacted clay that is probably towards the alkaline side
-gets big enough to make some shade
