Curb side trees?
Is there a recommended curb side tree for Mar Vista?? One that won't destroy the sidewalk?
Australian Willow is a wonderful, hardly any maintenance, drought tolerant and evergreen tree. It is slow growing, so I would recommend buying a 24" box ($160-$180 + delivery) to get a good start of 3-4 years. Mexican Redbud, Cercis Mexicana is another small drought tolerant, deciduous tree.
Both of these trees are sidewalk friendly.
