Advice on type of tree to plant

Asked April 24, 2018, 4:19 PM EDT

Hello The city took down a diseased ash tree in the island of our driveway and we want to plant a new tree. The island is approx 25 feet in diameter and is adjacent to the road. We have mulch in the island. Direct sunlight, a lot of concrete around the island so it won’t have a lot of soil around it The city suggested a salt tolerant tree. The ash tree was about 40 feet tall and aesthetically that was a good height with our home. The tree will be planted 20 feet from the road.

Here is a link to a listing of trees by height. Note that on the far right side salt tolerance is given. You should be able to find something in the Medium or Small sections: http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/yard-garden/trees-shrubs/tough-trees-and-shrubs-for-tough-sites/...
