We have fairly large eucalyptus trees planted along our major throughfares and we are looking for a replacement tree. Most of them are around 30-40 years old and due to several reasons, are declining. We would like to replace them with a tree of equal stature, but outside of the eucalyptus family. Evergreen, non invasive roots, drought tolerant, non oak trees are preferable. Thanks in advance.

Some evergreens to consider include Atlas Cedar, Yew Pine (Podocarpus macrophyllus), Magnolia, Chinese Evergreen Elm, Australian willow (Geijera), Evergreen Pear (pyrus kawakami), or deodar cedar. All will do well in your gardening region and all make excellent street trees. Best wishes with your project.
