You will definetly want a tree that doesn't have very many flowers then. I will list the ones that don't attract as many bees. Podocarpus Gracillior , Chinese Pistache.  Cinnamon Camfer ( not listed above, but is a nice evergreen tree, many are located on Central Parkway in center divide). Raywood Ash, Australian Willow. A smaller one that doesn't attract bees is called a Xylosma Tree. Another piece of advice, when looking up these trees online, they will give you a height of how big they can get. In the best soils, and best weather conditions that may be true. Because of our clay soils, and strong winds, the trees don't tend to get quite as big.

We used JC Landscaping also (2yrs ago) they did a Great Job at a very reasonable cost.  When we have guests over, they can't believe the price we paid for the work we got.  I don't have a BIG backyard, so that's why we concreted the whole thing to make better use of it. Plus no pets, so I don't have that issue either.  I would say, get your quotes (in writing).!Wink
