Tough trees for tough sites
Urban Trees: Site Assessment Selection for Stress Tolerance Planting, by Dr. Nina Bassuk (Cornell University Press, 2000) lists more than 100 varieties of trees that are appropriate for urban environments.
Currently, Landis has the majority of the trees listed. When complete, Landis will have the only comprehensive collection of trees tolerant of the rigors of northeast urban environments. This collection provides live specimens that may be viewed in their mature or near mature forms so the homeowner and municipality may determine if the trees' form, size and impact are appropriate for a particular difficult location.
