Preferred Trees

Asked April 13, 2019, 1:01 AM EDT

I have a large front yard on the corner. I just removed a dying 80 ft.oak tree. I would like to replace the tree but, am uncertain which to try. I receive full sun and would love a fast growing shade tree. There are no utility lines close to my home. I am considering a Cleveland pear, but, am hearing troubling results of leaf rot, etc. Would a nice serviceberry do? Please advise.
