If you had to start over....
What trees would you plant in Miami?
We lost two trees in Isaac - a 40-foot sapodilla and a gorgeous dwarf ponciana. A couple weeks ago we cut a plumeria that seemed to be diseased down. And we've just discovered the young live oak has up and died.
So my once lush and shady yard is a wasteland.
I'm thinking about an avocado where the sapodilla was. I don't want to do another oak because there's something killing them in my neighborhood. Fairchild's experts can't figure it out.
So, thoughts on natives and fruit trees?
Ugh. It's going to be ten years before my yard is shady again.
