Tree planted to line an avenue, traditionally a straight path or road with trees running along each side, is a customary way to emphasize the coming to or arrival at a landscape or architectural feature. Avenues of trees are some of the most strikingly important structural plantings to be found in designed landscapes.
In most cases, the trees planted in an avenue will be all of the same species or cultivar, so as to give formal and uniform appearance along the full length of the avenue. They can be planted in double rows on each side of a road. The following is a suggested list of trees that are ideal for this form of landscaping due to their height and speed of growth.
