Small trees

Small trees generally stay thirty feet or less.  There are a very large number of trees that fit in that category, so we are presenting just a few that do well in our area.  Evergreen selections are Arbutus ‘Marina’, Laurus nobilis, Feijoa sellowiana (pineapple guava) and Rhus lancea (African sumac), although it can get damaged in very cold winters.  Deciduous choices include Chitalpa, Cercis occidentalis and canadensis (redbud), Prunus ‘Krauter Vesuvius’ and ‘Purple Pony’ (purple leaved plums), flowering cherries, crabapples, Lagerstroemia (crape myrtle) and many others.
