I live in a rural area (open farm land) of Southern Ontario near Hamilton on a very busy older road. In the winter time the road is heavily salted to the extent that you can see salt residue on my front door. We sit about 30 feet from the road. We would like to plant two or three large trees in front however we are having trouble finding a suitable tree. It has been recommended that we plant these trees a minimum of 12 feet from the road. I really would like a nice looking tree but it needs to be hardy to weather our winter conditions. In addition we have the added problem of the pets that are invading the ash and maple trees. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what tree would be best for this situation?
