   Medium sized trees are better suited for planting on normal village parkways than their larger counterparts. Large trees require more living space, and for this reason it is recommended that they be planted on the private side of the sidewalk whenever possible. The overall objective of proper tree selection is to select the right tree for the right location in order that one may benefit from the tree without being subject to future maintenance liabilities or hazards.

   Small trees are appropriate in parkway locations where, due to space limitations, larger trees cannot be properly utilized without creating conflicts with existing trees. Height limitations imposed by overhead utilities also necessitate the use of appropriate small trees to avoid line conflicts and the necessity of excessive utility trimming that results in disfigured trees. On the whole, small trees which tend to be more ornamental than their larger counterparts can create an added aesthetic dimension to the streetscape.
