Well-behaved trees that won't take over your yard -- or your neighbor's.

(Acer palmatum var. dissectum)
Ahhh, the pleasure of owning a shade tree that understands boundaries. No more tangles with power lines, no more exhibitionist straying into the skies and neighbors' yards, no more dwarfing your house. Instead, each of these diminutive trees will grace your home and garden, not overwhelm it. Some make excellent patio trees, others soften the corners of a house and make it seem larger, still others provide year-round interest with colorful bark, flowers, leaves or fruit.
