Best tree for between street and sidewalk?
So I am considering planting two trees in the space between my sidewalk and street. The area is somewhat narrow, only about 3 1/2 feet probably. However it is quite long, probably close to 100'.
I'd like something reasonably fast growing. My top contenders are:
My city bans poplars, however I am pretty sure a tulip poplar truly isn't a poplar at all so it shouldn't be an issue right? It's more of a magnolia. Poplars are banned for the shallow root system apparently.
What is everyone's opinion on which tree is best?
