List of possible trees because they are salt tolerant
Landscape Architect for West Ave Project for completed Phase One and for future Phase Two is Savino Miller Design Studio
Mark Williams (Urban Forester City of Miami Beach) advocates to install Silva Cell on West Ave and Wavna agrees. Silva Cell product allows for larger trees to be planted in a limited green space area, see description with pictures. UPDATE: city deemed Silva Cell too expense and nixed it.
Below are trees that the Wavna Tree Committee recommends. Includes small, medium and large; and also decorative flowering trees.
Geiger – decorative tree, small, 15-20 ft, 2 inch wide orange flower, can bloom year round, best June & July. Exists on Pine Tree Dr at 28th St.
Desert Cassia – small 10 ft, feathery yellow flowers, attracts butterflies. Difficult to source so alternative is Bulnesia (aka Verawood). Exists on Bay Rd just south of Lincoln.
