Tree recommendation

Asked June 21, 2018, 8:28 PM EDT

Master Gardener, I am looking for recommendations on a tree. Here’s a bit about my space: Approx 8’ wide at maturity Approx 12’ tall at maturity Full sun (6-8 hrs day) Prefer pyramidal evergreen, but open to a pretty pink flowering tree too Hardy - less susceptible to disease/sickness Originally I liked Sester’s Blue Dwarf; however, I’ve read about concerns with blue spruce in this area, so I’m no longer sure if that is a good option. Thank you in advance for your help. Sincerely, Kurt McMahon
