    What is your favorite tree or trees? Please list them.

    Two trees I really like are Eastern Redbud and Weeping European Beech.

    Betula Nigra (River Birch) - when put in the right landasape it is very handsome

    Catalpa speciosa (Eastern Catalpa) - manyhate it -- but I like its slow interesting growth habit!

    Gingko Biloba (Ginkgo ) - unique leaves. Disease resistant


    Cercis canadensis (Eastern redbud) Beautiful small tree. Old redbuds have the most character of any landscape tree.


    ====================

    Worst Tree in the entire World? It would be a tie between the Bradford Pear nd the Silver Maple
