You don't get a street like this by being timid

I talked about this before but it's worth saying again. 

Swanston St, Melbourne (click photo to enlarge)

Because here's a great example of how to do it.

The City of Melbourne wasn't afraid to use BIG trees (Planes).

And it wasn't afraid to plant them CLOSE.

And it was obviously prepared to wear the grizzles of the shop owners about leaves landing on their roofs and awnings.

If we want the gain we accept the pain. Period.
