Tree Planting


Posted by Jeff , Mar 14,2007,19:09       Forum

Along a (long, north-south) street in our neighborhood there were 38 green ash trees that had to be removed due to efforts to control the spread of the green ash bore. This happened 2 years ago. We are located in Toledo, Ohio very near the Michigan border. We now want new trees in their place and the concensus is to plant "flowering trees." The city will plant trees but due to the fact our neighborhood was a forest, (we have many tall oak and maple trees) they are concerned with keeping "the look." To keep with the look they recommended the following for us to consider: Japanese Snow Bell; Red Bud (white or pink); Witchhazel (yellow); Sugar Maple; Tupilo? (may have mis-spelled). They say they plant trees 2-2 1/2 B&B. Any Suggestions?
