Introducing native trees and flowering plants

Asked May 31, 2017, 11:16 AM EDT

I recently moved to Pa and have 1.75 acres of which approximately 80% is mowable. I want to reduce my lawn by planting native trees and native flowering plants, like a small field of flowers. I currently have plenty of tulip poplars, a black walnut, some type of beech tree, a dogwood, a couple of maples and oaks. Any advice on indigenous trees needed in my area? Also what type of wildflowers would work for my area? And reputable places I can purchase the trees and wildflowers. Thanks for your time
