Landscape Tree At Door
by: Susan

Hi Donna,
There are many landscape trees that you can use near a door. I will assume that you get sun in this area and it is not all shade.

Flowering Dogwood - this tree has all season interest. It has lovely flowers in the spring, berries in the fall, pretty leaves in the summer and even an interest tree shape during the winter.

River Birch - more narrow, particularly towards the bottom. It is not dense and rather wispy, so you can see through it somewhat.

Star Magnolia - early blooming tree, one of the smaller trees.

Enkianthus - small tree/large shrub - beautiful bell like flowers. May be hard to find.

Crapemyrtle - comes in many sizes and flowers in the summer

These are just a few that you can use. Be sure to check out what the diameter of the tree will be at maturity, and place it appropriately. The larger the diameter, the further away from the door you must place it.

I hope this was helpful!

"Susan,  what a pleasure it was to work with you.  You made me feel like I was your only client - responding late at night and always so quickly!  Your design is amazing and we only hope we can do justice to it when we plant.  You have such fantastic ideas and you are so open to suggestions and changes.  Loved working with you - now if you could only come to Canada and plant it!!!"
