Santa Clara County California Shade Tree
I'd like recommendations for an outstanding shade tree for Santa Clara County, Ca. USDA zone 8B and Sunset Zone 15. I'm not after a quantity list. I want to know of about 3, 4 or half dozen of the truly best outstanding shade trees for this area (Santa Clara County California) with great features, stature and minimal bad habits. The tree should be capable of becoming large and suitable for planting at street. Could be evergreen or deciduous, but must have beautiful canopy. Please say WHY it's good and list any bad habits. Hope that is not too much to ask.
I would also like to hear any comments about how the Camphor tree correlates with the above requirements.
Thanks very much for your suggestions. Muchas gracia para su pensamientos.
