Ornamental Shade Trees

If the front lawn is small do not attempt to plant trees in it, and especially not exactly in the middle. However, on a wide, spacious lawn nothing is more desirable. than a few groups of shade trees or single specimens placed a little to one side of the center line and near that portion of the grounds where shade is needed.

Some of the best ornamental shade trees are the American linden, horse chestnut, American elm, tulip tree, hackberry, mossy cupped oak and others, sycamore and maple.
