Tree Selection and Timing
I have a new addition on my home and would like to plant a bird-attracting tree in a small space—about 10 feet by 15 feet, although the crown of the tree could be above an 8-foot fence eventually and have lots of room. I have been researching winterberry, serviceberry, and hawthorn. I am 60+, don't really enjoy gardening (sorry), and would like a tree that doesn't require much maintenance. But I will pay an expert to have proper care. What should I choose? When should I plant my new tree? I'm ready to fill my new windows with birds to look at and identify. Final note: there is no water spigot nearby. What is the easiest way to water a new tree?
