Answer

No species recommendation can be made without seeing the exact location of the tree planting site and knowing what your goal for planting is. Do you want a large shade tree or a small flowering tree? Are there overhead utility wires? One idea is to see what tree species are successfully growing in your neighborhood, assuming that your site will have similar characteristics.
