Row Planting Palette

> print page

This palette provides a selection of trees that maintain the formal look of a row planting and achieve that goal with minimal maintenance. Understory would typically be turf, but groundcovers and low shrubs can also be selected from the native or mixed plant palettes. Most trees listed are non-native species, however each tree has characteristics similar to those of PNW native vegetation.
