    Do dogwoods or sargent crabapples smell bad?

    I have 2 of each, free from my membership. I still have to plant but not sure where to plant them. I have a large steep hill/slope in my backyard which gets full sun. Was thinking of there but with the fruit/beries was concerned about rodents? Also, do either of these trees have that bad smell? There is a certin white flowering small tree in bloom now that looks beautiful but smell fishy. Does anyone have the name of that tree. I am in zone 5/6 in New York. Thanks!

    I think the tree you are smelling that smells fishy is a bradford pear. Some people say it smells like rotting meat and others find other unpleasant smells to compare it with. Do you see these trees?

    Dogwood and Sargent crabapples don't smell unpleasant. Generally the birds will take the berries of the dogwood very quickly once they are ripe. The Sargent crabapple has the smaller apples that the birds tend to gobble up when they're ripe. I think they're great selections and can be planted on a hill. Do be vigilant about watering until established.

    When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.

    That's it! The smelly tree is the Bradford pear!

    Glad I found it. If you need info on how to plant, water and mulch new trees just let know.
