A ornamental tree went bottoms up on me over the last few years. I cut it down today and am in the process of digging out the stump. It is clear from the house and will be planted about 4' from the deck edge. My thoughts where to get an oak tree. There are not a lot of them in my area. So educate me on them if you have an idea of what ones are most favored. We currently have two large maples and two medium ash trees in the front and side of the house and a maple in the back yard so another maple is out of the question. I am really after something that grows slow.
