Numbers 2, 3, 4, and 6 can (or already do) survive here, and maybe number 11, number 8 and 9 are hardy enough but NYC isn't dry enough.

And the London Plane Tree may be my least favorite tree, only because it's our most common tree, it's like the only tree I see within a 3-block radius, and its fall color sucks, I'm kinda glad it's sort of banned/discouraged here. I like its bark and lime-colored leaves in the spring though.
But I thought p. tremuloides was native to NYC
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Populus_tremuloides

Yes, plane trees can be pretty ugly in the fall. I don't like that they start to change color earlier than most trees.

My favorites:
White oak


Willow oak


Southern live.... oak.


Loblolly pine


Least favorite:
Armstrong maple - I hate this one the most


Eastern white pine - looks nice in a forest, but ugly when people are addicted to planting it around this lake (I mean, look at these monsters https://www.google.com/maps/place/Wh...db31f2c99f736e)

Wrong:


Right:


Horse chestnut - It may be endangered, and it may have pretty flowers in the springtime, but that doesn't make it less annoying when it's leaves get very colorful in freaking September, and it may start to turn in August.



London plane tree - another tree that loses its green color early

i want my dream house to be built right here



now for the worse thing ever (not a tree but it needs to be here!!)



schillings…. s***lings more like

they got this stupid carrot-like root system that is quadruple the size of the actual plant you see above ground. so they are a real pain in the butt to pull out when they die... and they will die! they are very sensitive to soil conditions (or something) at least in my area because half of them died for what seemed like no reason at all. god they suck. and look at them. the best people can make them look are these stupid clumps in the ground (or merge them together into a super organism). i like to think there are way better choices out there for a hedge bush than this thing. i prefer to just cut it down to the base and just have a stump. a dead schilling is the best kind of schilling.

Omg I love the jacuticaba trees! How gorgeous

I like all trees but I don't like when there are too many coniferous and deciudous trees in one place since they can be so repetitive

One of my most favorite trees that also happens to be a native of the Seattle area is the evergreen Pacific Madrona tree
