Need to know what type of tree to plant in space we just removed a dying tree

Asked February 19, 2017, 2:12 PM EST

We just removed a 25 year old Curly Willow from our property. We would like to put another tree there, but are not sure what will grow here. It is very wet in this area with lots of clay. Can someone help me. Thank you in advance for any information or a visit. Ray and Kathy Masterson 19 Stoddard Drivee Newark, DE 19702 302-292-1894.

Ray and Kathy,
Check out Sweetbay Magnolia (Magnolia virginiana 'Jim Wilson' Moonglow) , River Birch (Betula nigra 'Heritage' or 'Dura-heat') and Red Maple (Acer rubrum 'Autumn flame' or 'Red sunset') as possible replacements.
