David's notes for 02 August:
Avoid 'fast-growing' not only does it mean higher maintenance, but also higher water needs.
Select “Species Type” = Plants
Mobile Apps on Invasive Species
This will be a list of mostly small trees (usually under 30'tall) – it is not inclusive, but it is a start and these trees will mostly not do you wrong. Always, always, always MULCH under your trees and when watering strive to get water down into the 18” root zone – if in doubt, use a soil probe. No freshly planted ANYTHING is drought resistant – even trees. In the first five or more years, special attention would be best until they get established.
