To keep your lawn and plants healthy, it is wise to choose plants in the landscape for their resistance to insect and disease problems. Landscaping professionals are familiar with the plants adapted to Kansas growing conditions that are known for having few pest problems. Pests can wreak havoc on plants and the landscape in general. If you do have a plant that is afflicted with the same insect or disease every year, it is best that you replace that plant with another variety or type of plant.
For example, here are some small trees that would work well for Eastern Kansas:
Cockspur Hawthorn (thornless)
Smoketree, short varieties
