What tree to plant in front yard

Asked March 3, 2019, 9:14 AM EST

I have a good sized front yard.. Last October my 20 year old Aristocrat Pear tree decided to split on me. I need to replace it with a Nice Similar Native Tree that won't do that but grows fast, has nice leaves most of the year and blooms in spring.. The other tree I had to replace last year I replaced with a Black Gum tree.. What do you suggest for our area please?

Yellowwood is a nice native that blooms in spring. It gets up to about 30 feet tall. Redbud and fringetree bloom in spring but would be smaller trees. Kousa dogwood would bloom in spring and be hardier than native dogwood.
