Hello, I am in the early planning stages of a garden at the far end of our back yard. Our yard backs onto a ravine so there are lot's of large mature trees. Our yard is fenced and mostly grass in that area so currently it would be full sun. I would like to plant a tree for shade, something with colour, strong and resistant but with character. I definately would like to avoid a tree that suckers or self seeds. I was thinking about a red maple but don't know much about them. I am also up for oter suggestions as well. The lot is approximately 40 feet wide and probably about 200 feet long in total. Any tree suggestions would be great, ones that people would plant right away if they would move...Thanks for the help.
