Small trees with round tops are very effective, appealing and extremely desirable. They form beautifully dense round crowns on clear stems. They are perfect trees for incorporating into garden design work or individually into a small garden space. They also work spectacularly well when planted along garden pathways, driveways or avenues.
Small round top trees are slow growing and keep improving as they age. They should be annually pruned to maintain their outstanding crown shape and effect.
