We have a Silver Maple which has been slowly dying in our back yard. It is about 30'+ tall, with a 3' diameter trunk. As it is only 10'-12' from the back of the house, anything we replace it with needs to have upright branching, narrow and hopefully ultimately getting to 30' tall also.
Preferably another deciduous tree so we can have some shade in the summer, (we face west at the back), yet a more clear view during the winter.
Can you please suggest our options for this Colorado climate ??

The "expert" is apparently on maternity leave and for some reason a temporary replacement has not been decided upon !! Which I find somewhat amusing !!
After phoning in, I have been sent some links to do my own homework.
