I'm still working on a second draft of a land development code at work. I'm trying to find a list of what would be considered nuisance trees for the central Texas (Austin) area, with little luck. Here's the definition of "nuisance tree":
Tree, nuisance: tree of a species designated as “nuisance trees” in the landscaping regulations; or an exotic tree not native to Central Texas, that may threaten the viability of native plant species and the integrity of the ecosystem; as determined by an arborist or state agency.
Native and "well adapted" trees will be permitted to meet minimum landscaping requirements.
Any ideas for a list of nuisance species? (I know the engineering crowd may think that every tree is a nuisance. )
