Are there any trees (besides the obvious) that look tropical
I live in Portland Oregon. I just cut down a 50 ft cedar that was dead center in my back yard. The cedar basically was growing funny, dropping needless (which kills the grass) and providing too much shade (which also killed my grass). Now, there's just a huge bare spot. The majority of the rest of my yard is relatively tropical (lots of bananas, cannas, fan palms, bamboo, etc.) Does anyone know of a tree that will grow 30 to 40 ft tall that will take up a lot of space AND look relatively tropical... not a palm though? I was thinking a sumac, but heard they smell bad and drop tons of seeds which start new sumacs in the grass. I also already have tons of bamboo, so don't really need any more of that.
Let me know if you have any ideas.
