disagreement re river birch tree
- I must respectfully disagree with the river birch recommendation. Its VERY messy; I'm CONSTANTLY picking up sticks! It's pretty though!
- English Walnut is a wonderful easy to grow productive tree. The bark is smooth and it smells great, easy for kids to climb, great fors-shade.

Cedar Elm - a Texas Favorite
- A tough dependable tree for this part of the world. Taller than it is wide, drought and flood resistant, muted fall color, small leaves. Each tree is sort of unique. Walking in a Cedar Elm flat in fall is one of my fondest memories.
