The trees on Euclid have no chance. The bums use them for urinals.

Freakin' exactly. AND who's palms got greased for trees that would not work in that application. Dimora - ask your friend to plant annual plants/flowers that can make it through to the next year. Or we'll add that to your city/county/COUNTRY rip-off!

It's called exhaust and salt. Ever see the pine trees along the highways? Dead.

I have those trees growing on my property and they grow just fine. If you ask me, I would say you don't know how to plant trees. 90% of the time, the reason freshly planted trees and other plants die are because the root ball of the plant/tree was not broken up. The roots will continue to grow in a circle like they were still in the container, becoming root bound, until it kills the plant/tree.
Hopefully, whomever plants the next batch of trees will break up the root balls before planting them.
