How to select the right tree?

Asked May 27, 2016, 11:06 PM EDT

I want to plant a smaller tree in a sunny spot in my front yard, along my driveway, but several feet away. I had a small crab apple tree there before but thousands of apples smashed on my driveway and rolled into the street. I had to have it cut down finally. Please help me with ideas for a small tree or two.. Not a fruit tree. Thanks. Linda

Keep in mind....your hardiness zone, the amount of sunlight at the location, type of soil, potential exposure to salted runoff coming from driveway in winter/spring.
