Canopy trees can be planted if the right-of-way is at least 6′ wide, these trees will grow taller.
Cypress is a moderately fast-growing tree. Its pale green leaves turn a bright coppery color before dropping in the fall. Though Cypress are often seen growing around lakes, they also thrive in dry urban locations away from sidewalks, homes and driveways.
This moderate-to-rapid-growing deciduous tree will bloom with sweet-smelling, tulip-like, greenish-yellow flowers in the mid-spring. Its canopy forms an oval crown and grows from a strong central trunk.
Sweetbay Magnolias are medium-sized evergreen trees that seem to glimmer in the wind due to the whitish-green underside of their leaves. Their cream-colored, lemon-scented flowers, bloom from June through September.
Live Oaks are moderate-growing, sprawling evergreen canopy trees. They are drought-resistant and highly tolerant of urban conditions. They can grow to 60-80 feet tall and are broad-spreading and round. They are drought tolerant and prefer full sun.
Understory trees are best if you have overhead power lines or a narrow parkway, as they grow shorter than canopy trees.
Moderate growing evergreen tree. Its showy, red berries attract pollinators in the fall. It’s a rounded vase, multi-stem tree that can be clipped into a tight hedge or allowed to grow as a small tree with contorted trunks.
In early spring small, white, fragrant flowers cover the branches. The 0.5-inch-diameter fruits which follow are red, ripening to yellow, and are tart until they ripen in the late summer. The plums are either eaten fresh or used to make a delicious jelly.
The Fringe tree blossoms in spring and is blanketed with fragrant white flowers which make it appear to be covered in cotton. A medium-sized tree, the Fringe tree is an excellent addition to a diverse home landscape.
