I agree with you on the inappropriate plantings. Just the other day I was driving through an otherwise nice town when I noticed oak trees planted in a strip between the sidewalk and main road in a space that was no more than 2' wide. There were at least 3 of them. In about 15 years these trees will wind up being topped off to avoid power lines, trimmed to keep from scraping cars and pedestrians, or cut down and replaced because the sidewalk has started to buckle from the roots and diameter of the trunk. That's if they are still there and haven't already been replaced by another inappropriate tree. I don't know if the city or the bank had them planted there, but the landscaper should have known better. (Grass mowers masquerading as professional landscapers is another pet peeve of mine, but that's a rant for a different day.)
