I am currently putting in a new garden. I live in Wellington in the northern suburbs and we do get some strong winds. We are currently working on improving the soil as we go as it is mostly clay. We would like to put it a larger tree (deciduous) that would provide some green to the garden in summer and some shade and shelter. It would be in a position that would get a good amount of sun. Do you have any suggestions?

Improving the clay will give you more options. Your options would be Albizia julibrissin, Persian Silk Tree. Height to 10m, 5-6m tall. Fast growing deciduous tree with fine feathery looking leaves & pink flowers in summer. Popular garden tree for small gardens. Tolerates dry areas once established and thrives in hot districts, and even in poor soils. Or, Liquidambar Little Richard(Dwarf Sweet gum). Dense and slow growing with smaller leaves that still give the traditional autumn shades of gold, orange and red. Great for the smaller garden. Medium hardy, but young growth can be damaged by late frost. Deciduous. 3-4m.
