Have you lost trees to recent storm damage? Are you looking for an alternative species? What do we mean?

For example, you may have a lot of Palo Verde, Mesquite, or Acacia throughout your project. You’ve lost a number of trees due to disease or storm damage, etc. The Palo Verde trees can be messy, have shallow root systems leaving them vulnerable to storm damage, and are prone to disease. Instead of replacing like-for-like, with regards to species, you’re looking for another drought tolerant tree. What are the options for southwest climates and low water tolerance?

We recommend the Tipuana Tipu tree. It is drought tolerant, offers an abundant canopy, and has beautiful yellow flowers during blooming season. The Tipu is a hardy species and perfect for the southwest climate, and water conservation.

Want to learn more about the Tipuana Tipu? Contact Blue Marble Landscape!
