Helpful Tip from the Garden Geeks: What NOT to plant in a Windy Garden
* Large leave plants like catalpa, paulownia and rhododendron.
* Brittle trees like silver maple, poplar, or Siberian elm. These trees crack easily in heavy winds.
* Pollen-producing trees like hickorys, oaks and elms; the wind can widely distribute allergy causing pollen.
* "Messy" trees like poplars and willows. The seed pods and falling leaves they shed will become a nuisance.
