Some people resist tall trees for the dangers they pose.

Most arborists would counter that good tree care can manage the dangers, while the benefits are fewer from shorter specimens.

Here are some worthy natives for modern streets:

• American elms, disease-resistant: ‘Princeton’, ‘Valley Forge’, ‘Pioneer’, and ‘Liberty’.

• Pin oaks, Quercus palustris

• Red oaks, Quercus rubra

• Scarlet oaks, Quercus coccinea

• American lindens, Tilia americana

• Little Leaf lindens, Tilia cordata

• American sycamores, Platanus occidentalis
