Tree for windy location

Clare O\’Reilly asked 10 years ago
We would like some advice on choosing a suitable small tree for a windy front garden between N11 and Redcross, Co. Wicklow. At present we have an Acer Rufinerve planted on the site. It is not thriving as the wind is breaking the young branches and tearing off the leaves. It never gets a chance to show any autumn colour. Our soil is neutral and good.

The mountain ash, or sorbus, is a suitable tree for an exposed spot and carries flowers, berries and good autumn colour.
