Looking to plant trees...

2 trees I am looking at planting are Sunset Maple and Marshall Seedless Ash.

I live in Minnesota. Any things that would say NO to these trees or are these good trees?

Hello Justrelaxing

Not sure, but I think Sunset Maple is a cultivar of the Norway Maple - not a bad tree, but Norways do have a habit of self girdling their trunks with their roots. Ashes are beautiful trees if you don't mind some litter, although that would be reduced in the seedless varieties.

I'm going to move this post over to the Garden forum where I'm sure you will get more (and probably better) opinions on both these trees and possibly some suggestions for others
