Q

I would like to make my yard friendly to birds and other creatures.

Does the narrow sweet gum cultivar that has less fruit still attract as much wildlife as the regular sweetgum? I live in Center City and need to replace a Sophora with a tree without a large canopy. I would like to be as helpful to the birds and insects as possible. What are your suggestions? I love Redbuds but I read that they are short-lived. Is this true?

Answer

It sounds as if your space is limited so I recommend using a narrow fruit tree such as Prunus serrulata`Amanogawa`as it provides flowers and small black fruits attractive to birds.
