Re: trees and other design elements

Nice list, Ceres!  I didn't list my 4 Japanese maples because they're all
under my 12 foot consideration for tree status.  I have a dozen Thuja
planted 12 yrs ago that are capable of tree height, but I keep them at 8-10
ft to promote bushiness.   In a few years I'll probably give up trying to
control them.  3 more Tsuga canadensis that are only hedge height at
present.   I also have some Syringa, Robinia, Variegated Cornus, a few
Viburnums, and a Prunus cistena that may fit in the 12 foot range.

Oh!  and I don't know how I could have forgotten my Pin Oak.  I put that
baby in about 10 yrs ago and it looks to be 40 ft tall now.

There are many other trees I'd love to have, but I want to keep some sun
space available.  I cram a lot in here, but sometimes I just have to admit I
can't have it all.
