Salt tolerant Natives Part 3: Deciduous
My parents are in coastal Zone 6 New England and have a lot that is part dense clay and part sand, all acidic. They lost trees to wind, salt spray, and beetles. Trying to choose wind and salt tolerant disease resistant trees, ideally native. Deer are not a concern.
Oh,and just to make it fun, since it my parent's place I wouldn't be able to water them.
Anyone have any opinions on these trees? Any favorites and least favorites? Any you know don't do well around here?
