Good trees, bad trees

Normally, trees on a street are a good thing.  Good trees (like this row of trees in Forest Hills, Queens) provide shade for a sidewalk.  But not all trees are so-well behaved.  Where there is no sidewalk, a tree can actually endanger pedestrians by preventing them from walking on grass.  For example, these trees (in a condo development in Jacksonville) actually endanger pedestrians by depriving them of grass to walk on and forcing them into the street.
