Needs to be drought tolerant once established, able to take wind and lots sun. And give me some winter interest and some shade for the bench. Spread - about 8-10 feet, height maxing at 20 foot. Don't mind pruning but would object to anything that suckers.
I donΉt want an evergreen - in the long view (up the hill) it is backed by pines, oaks and maples and I think would get lost. Great bark or fruit that would attract birds....
Go to town folks... I want to make this happen next spring and will be putting my pennies aside to save for it.
