Missed opportunity

St Leonard's Ave, Leederville (click to enlarge)
This Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica) in St Leonard's Ave, West Leederville is nice but represents a missed opportunity.

No overhead power lines on either side of the road plus wide verges provides the opportunity to use big shade trees and create some serious canopy.

Planting small trees where you can put big ones is just bad economics apart from anything else.
