What's growing in your neighborhood?

Understanding plant species growing in the neighborhood not only allows for a greater connection to nature but insight into which beneficial species could be planted around the city. Trees recommended in our Approved Boulevard Tree List are chosen based off their size, form, adaptability, and tolerance for urban conditions. Tree species have been broken down into size classes small (15-30ft), medium (30-60ft), and large (60ft+) based off their average growing height.
