Orange County Tree suggestions for front yard (criteria included)

10 years ago

Hey Everyone!

I live in Orange County, CA with a West facing home.

I am looking for tree suggestions for my front yard with the following criteria (Thank you in advance!)

And just in case.. I am a total newbie of anything tree or gardening if my criteria seems far fetched, I apologize. Anything that might be similar the majority of the criteria is also welcome!

- Small tree approximately 15 feet or so?

- Drought tolerant

- Disease tolerant

- Fast growing (preferred)

- Fragrant flowers

- Strong branches in case we put up a single rope swing for the kids.

- I like the Japanese cherry blossom tree, but I read in another topic that it might require too much water?

- Full sun

- Evergreen

Thank you again!
