Our Utah Mayday Tree follow-up
Some of you may remember this tree I posted a spring pic of back on April 3, 2011. I was just outside watering the lettuce and admiring it. With tomorrow being Earth Day, I thought it would be a fun follow up post. If you are looking for a good tree for your yard this is one to research. We have really enjoyed it so far.
Here it is today (3 years later). It's called a May Day. We found it at West Side Nursery. It was planted in the early spring of 2010. It's hardy to zone 3, doesn't need much water and is drought resistant.
As you can see, it's also a pretty fast grower. The birds love this tree, we've had them nesting in it year after year. The only draw back so far is having to hold our breath every spring and hope it doesn't snow late.
Here's what Utah State University's Tree Browser has to say about them. Does anyone else have experience with this tree they want to share? What's your favorite tree?
