Trees with a mature height of less than 20 feet can be planted anywhere throughout
this zone, this includes street tree plantings under the utility lines since
these trees will not grow tall enough to interfere with the utility lines. Low
zone trees are also recommended for areas where the soil volumes are limited and
therefore they are unable to support tall or medium zone trees.
Taking the time to make sure you place the correct trees in
