Does anyone have suggestions? We had to remove an old cherry tree that was unhealthy but it had provided shade for the front of the house in our brutal summers. I need to replace it with something of similar or larger size.

I've used Red Mill Nursery for stuff like this in the past. Last time I was there, I think they had some trees that large.

Kiefer normally has a good selection of larger trees - we've shopped there in the past and were pleased.

A few years back we had Atlantic Avenue Nursery supply and plant two 16' maple trees in our front yard.

Default Call around and see if anyone wants the cherry wood!

people who smoke and bbq are usually nutso over fruit tree wood--especially apple, but maybe cherry also. Strongly recommend that you call around. Someone might pay you good $$$$$ and remove the tree to boot!

Thanks, everyone. The tree was already removed, and it wasn't an actual fruit-bearing cherry tree. Just an ornamental. I already had the tree guys here for some very large trees out back (they used a crane and lifted them straight up over the house - it was incredible to watch) so this was a tiny add-on price.

If you don't mine saying, who did you use ? Were you pleased with price/results ?

Nope, don't mind at all. I would have made a separate post about it since I did extensive research and data gathering, but usually that's considered a faux pas.

I used J&D Tree Pros and their huge crane. Didn't even have to come in the driveway and risk damaging it - they did it from the street (it cost me a bit extra because of the extra time and effort required to attach the extension ***). I have some pics but suffice it to say they are professionals and removed about 7 trees, most very large (30-60 feet tall with very large girth) and trimmed another and it was quite reasonable.

I don't know why the forum didn't let me type "j i g" but filled in asterisks instead. Weird.
