Street tree for narrow planting strip?
Hello everyone. Does anyone have advice or opinions on selecting large deciduous trees for this situation?
= planting strip next to street 3 feet wide (see photo below)
= I plan to remove existing lawn, replace with organic mulch or DG
= drip irrigation
= street is on west side of lot (western exposure)Northern California, Zone 8B, Sunset zone 14
These are recommended for this area:
Calif sycamore (Platanus racemosa)
Red maple (Acer rubrum)
American sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua)
Valley Oak (Quercus lobata)
Chinese Hackberry (Celtis sinensis)
Red oak (Quercus rubra)
Chinese pistache (Pistacia chinensis)
