Understory Trees

We have a 20+ yr. old large apple tree that is reaching the end of its life. [Eek!]
I was thinking about planting a tree/conifer underneath it to grow so when we have to cut ti down we will have a tree still there.
Any suggestions? [dunno] I was thinking of a blue spruce.
We have 2 on the other side of the yard...A green and a blue one. [flower]

Dogwoods are one of the truest understory trees.

most conifers put on foliage where exposed to the sun.

ever notice that a blocked side of a conifer is usually bare as are the inside portions if the outer growth is dense

I love the sweet scents wafting in the breeze. I stop to admire the vibrant colors of all living things. And people think me odd. Then ODD I am!!!
