The following statement is provided by Portland Parks and Recreation Urban Forestry:
The best protection for sidewalks is to plant the right tree in the right place. However, extra protection can be taken by installing root barriers at the time of planting. Root barriers guide roots downward and away from infrastructure and therefore may help prevent sidewalk damage and reduce sidewalk trip hazards. Root barriers are required by Portland Parks and Recreation Urban Forestry for all planting sites less than 4 feet wide, and are recommended for all other street tree planting sites. Root barriers are panels or rolls of rigid plastic either 12" or 18" high and a few millimeters thick. The rolls are cut, or panels lock together, to achieve desired length, which is 6' long.
We'd love to help you plant this tree, but first we need you to make sure
we are planting in your neighborhood and that the city allows this tree for
your home. Let's start by checking your address. Or if you're already
approved, logon here.
As a non-profit we rely on government support, foundation support, and individuals like you to plant your trees. Together we will make the urban forest greener for everyone.
The quantity of trees exceeds the number available. Please adjust quantities accordingly.
Characteristics: 'Jelena' is an upright cultived variety with ascending branches and a spreading habit. It is noted for its winter-blooming, sweetly fragrant, copper flowers (to 1" long), each having four narrow, ribbon-like, crinkly petals. Upon close inspection, however, the flower petals are actually multi-colored, having reddish bases, orange centers and yellow tips. Axillary clusters of these flowers bloom along the stems in February to March. Broad-oval, green leaves (to 6" long). Orange-red fall color is usually quite attractive. Synonymous with and formerly called H. x intermedia 'Copper Beauty'.
Growing Conditions: Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Best flowering is in full sun. Prefers moist, acidic, organically rich soils. Promptly remove root suckers to prevent colonial spread.
Uses: Shrub borders, woodland gardens. Screen or tall hedge. Good specimen due to late winter flowers, attractive summer foliage and fall color.
Height: 15' at maturity
Width: 12' at maturity
Shape: Vase-shaped canopy on small tree
