Oak trees, Maple trees, and a few pine like trees (not sure what they are called but in the pine family).

At the moment we have absolutely NO trees on our property. At our last house we had two huge red oaks, a fir that didn't live long, a linden, and a crab apple. My mom used to be the wholesale manager at a local nursery, so she bought all the trees for us as a new home gift. We haven't been able to afford any trees yet at this house. I'd like to get another linden or two, b/c I love the smell of their flowers, and I just love aspen trees but we are a bit too north for them to survive more than about 10 years before you have to replace them. The only plants we have so far is one Juddi Vibernum bush, a bunch of hostas we transplanted from our last house, and some lillie of the valley. We still need another bush to fill the bed out, b/c at the moment there is a huge empty space waiting for one. Oh, we also have a huge bunch of candy lillies in that bed.

In the front yard we have one awful (pardon the expression, but I don't know what else to call it) 'piss maple'. At least, that's what I've always heard these trees called.
In the back yard we have a linden that gets gorgeous white/yellow blossoms in the spring that attract bees like crazy and has a fabulous scent. On the other side of the yard is a small Japanese maple and my beautiful red dogwood tree.

We have two Pecan trees, one mexican oak and a lime tree...the last two we planted back in 2006. Unfortunately the lime tree hasn't produced since then

One ancient sugar maple, 400 ft tall It's been there for at least a hundred and fifty years and I'll be sad when it has to come down ....

Our two other old maples were cut down a few years ago due to disease
But we found a sapling from one of them and it's about twenty years old now, in where the old tree was. It's getting very tall. We also replaced the other old tree with a (non related) sapling. There's also a young tree behind the garage.

- A little cedar in the back yard
- Japanese maple
- An ancient honeysuckle and an equally ancient lilac. Before the branch fell on our yard, these two trees were about twenty feet wide, and just as tall.
- A Manitoba Maple that just suddenly sprouted up one day ... I think it's around ten years old now. It's getting huge!
- Some other random trees ... I forget and there's no way I'm wading in the snow to find out! I'll wait for spring

We have 6 Birch, 3 Crab apple. 2 Apple. 1 Mayday . The greenspace behind us is full of poplar, pine and spruce Love the trees. But I don't like raking the leaves

A maple, some cedar, a mock pear, one I'm not entirely sure what it is, and one that around here gets called a paradise tree. The paradise tree will probably go at some point, all they do it drop seeds everywhere and then there's annoying startings sprouting all over the yard.

We also have a few crepe myrtle bushes around the back of the house and trumpeter vine around the fence which we're going to try to keep killing back.

No trees here
post #13 of 27
We have the dreaded Killer Cottonwood (where one of the stems fell on the house)... plus another... spruce trees, a sunburst locust, a red Japanese maple and a dogwood.

Lots of trees along the back lot line that are not ours, including mulberry trees which the birds LOVE!
post #14 of 27
3 very old oak trees, 2 dogwoods and 3 crape myrtles. I also have 1 lemon and 1 lime tree that are in huge planters that I have yet if I'm going to plant in the ground or not. My blood orange tree is 2 years old and almost 4 feet high that's in the front yard.

There isn't enough room here to list all my trees so this is a sample,

Acer rubrum (Red maple-not to be confused with the maples that have the burgundy leaves!), Korean maples, Japanese maples, sugar maples, Ginnala maple. About 12-15 total of those. A chestnut tree, shagbark hickory, hundreds of black walnut, a few American elms though those are dying quite regularly, a catalpa, about 6 or so horsechestnuts, a japanese tree lilac, about 10 crab apples, 4 cherry, 2 apple, 2 plum and 2 pear trees, a hawthorn that is struggling after it was moved, some white and green ash trees, another ash tree, a couple larch trees, several pine trees and about 25 spruce trees, a virginia fringe tree, some black locust and sumac which are terribly invasive and I'm trying to remove from property. Also about 30 dwarf conifers and about 70 or so different types of shrubs.

Kind of hard to think of all when the snow is on the ground. Trees range from seedlings to mature ones on our 5 plus acres!

Wow! You have a blood orange in NC? We had one when we lived in Italy, but I thought it was too cold for them here...

As far as the trees in my yard, there are sugar maples, crape myrtles, bradford pears, Japanese red maples, cherry and plums.

Oh nice, i'm gonna ask about a few of your trees-

Pomegranate - what size does a dwarf and a full size become? We've been here almost a year and i still don't know Ours is shorter than my height, and has fruited already since we've been here.

Kumquat - can it be mistaken for a young mandarin plant? We've had no fruit on this plant, it's only a couple of feet high and i certainly know it's a citrus.

Cherry - do find you have enough fruit on it, i've read that alot of people have trouble getting a nice full crop.

Almond - can you also mistake them for apricots , when do the almonds become ready to eat?

I don't have any of the other fruits you listed but i know how the rest of what we have goes

We have a giant Black Walnut in the back corner of our yard and it shades 2/3 of the yard in the summer. I love it.

There's also a little Hybrid Mulberry tree in the front yard...it's a weird little tree, about 6 ft tall, looks like a mulberry but was apparently crossed with a pussywillow tree so it's this cute little umbrella that has big fuzzy pussywillows in the spring.

There's also a nice hedge of Cedars, but they actually belong to our neighbours.

I have 4 huge Plumeria trees, that were only 6 inches tall when I planted them about 6 years ago, and now they are huge!!! Well over my head. And that is after being trimmed back about 2 years ago to a stub! They are so beautiful, and their smell is intoxicating!!!!

Where I live, they call it, "Piney Woods of Texas" because we have tons of
Pine Tress. The pines in my yard are at the very least 75 ft tall. We also have very large Oaks.
