I hope you won't get over anxious and go out, buy a tree and start hacking at it like some do.
This is not the season to do any hacking on these deciduous trees. They are getting ready to go into dormancy.
If you do go looking and find something you like, make sure it is a small leafed tree, because much of the left over stock this year is leafless at this time. I was just out to many places looking for pine bark and there really isn't much out there currently.
BTW, I live across the river from you near Cherry Hill.
If you have a south facing window in your house with a semi-wide sill you could get a ficus and it would be happy as a clam in that light. We grow one in west light that is somewhat shaded with no issues.
Just suggesting that as an alternative to going out, dropping money on something you might not even know you'll like when it leafs out, and being disappointed. You can't do much with the temperate stuff right now anyway as I mentioned above.
I would think about it.
