Wind Resistant Trees
My narrow side yard is windier than I realized three years ago, when I planted the otherwise perfect pairing of Forest Pansy Redbud cercis canadensis and Frisia Honeylocust robinia pseudoacacia. Both have broken in summer winds.
I just spent hours at Twombly, with sales help, and drove two hours home with a small heptacodium (7 sons tree) and a modest Catalpa B. Aurea. Now I'm getting the bad feeling that both of these trees will be similarly brittle. "What was I thinking" and what can I do instead? Please share your thoughts.
