Thanks for the reply. Colorful trees would be really nice. I would like to stay with a tree so I can plant under it. This is new construction so I am just now getting a handle on the soil composition. I seem to have a few inches of black dirt above clay. A tree that would remain small or grow very, very slow is what I have in mind. My main concern remains invasive roots. I am just moving from a house where some of the trees I had planted included maples and birch. I'm still fighting, just trying to get some hostas out of the ground.
I really appreciate the help I know little about trees save Oaks, maples, & birch. I'd like to try something different but would sure like to avoid some of the errors I've made in the past.
