Remember not long ago when streets were lined with green ash trees, one after another? And before that, American elms? How different things are today. I hardly even know what some of these new trees are. Consider this one block of Bunker Hill, for example.
2045: swamp white oak (Quercus bicolor)
2429: sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua) -- good!
2438: American elm (Ulmus americana) -- bold move!
2450: Asian fringetree (Chionanthus retusus) -- wow!
2453: hardy rubbertree (Eucommia ulmoides) -- gosh!
2464: silver basswood (Tilia tomentosa) -- a gem within the genus
2514: Maackia amurensis (across street) -- wow squared!
2570: Hackberry (Celtis occidentalis) -- long overdue
And there's a tupelo (Nyssa) in the yard of 2477, a prolifically fruiting hornbeam (Carpinus) in another, and a hophornbeam (Ostyra), yellowwood (Cladrastis) and English oak (Quercus robur) around the corner on Bluett. Kudos to Kay Sicheneder and others at the city for broadening the palette.
