Garden Yard Trees NYC


City planting has challenges but in them lie seeds for invention. Mostly plantings must be resilient (to heat, use, etc). The greatest durability is needed for street and roofs, but today's sustainability demands hold for building Entries, Yards, and garden Courtyards.



Of all plantings, canopy trees hold up best.  Like tall ones on the street, small shade trees -- suited to small spaces and containers -- also do the most visually and environmentally, save money on energy bills, and grow property value.
