The truth about trees

Today we went tree shopping. It's not as easy as it sounds. We wandered nurseries for hours. We studied tree size and root systems.
One nurseryman told us almost anything will grow in this zone.
At another business the guy told us we don't have good soil, proper drainage or a hillock to plant a tree on.
By now every leaf and every branch is looking the same. We're tired and discouraged and we're beginning to think all trees are evil.

Have you thought about talking to a good gardener in the area. I can't believe there isn't a perfect tree for you. Look up and down the street for god's sakes!

Well, that's what I thought. But the nurserymen we talked to convinced us we have the only spot in town where you can't grow a tree! Kind of like some sort of vortex or something???
