    I’m looking to add a tree to my front yard. I currently have two upright Japanese maples and a magnolia Vulcan. I’d like to add something upright and formal that’s gets a bit taller, here are a few contenders:

    Paperbark maple
    Sun valley maple (may get too tall)
    Ginkgo Princeton Sentry (slow growing, shouldn’t get too huge in 15-20 years, not crazy for the branch structure and winter bark)
    Galaxy magnolia

    for the side yard I have about 100-150 ft stretch that’s I’m looking to add a row of tree. Right now I’m considering Yoshino cherries but I’m open to other options, the side yard is south facing and front yard is west facing. I appreciate everyone’s input.
