    This block's west half is lined with 5 'Shirotae' trees.

    That 6th photo with all that green! One year I tried to make sense of the trees on that street - I wondered if some trees had flowers more green than others, and maybe a few 'Gyoiko' had got mixed in, but I couldn't find any consistency to what was going on.

    I agree with the IDs in posting 100.

    For instance see posting #85 in this thread. That tree is the third from the west end of the block. I edited two photos to enhance the green the way I think the people who post 'Gyoiko' photos are doing. Even the unedited versions though do seem to fit Kuitert's (see original posting) description for 'Gyoiko'.
    Then I went to 1st and Macdonald (this was in 2021), a group of trees never really having been accused of being 'Gyoiko'. Here are two photos from then. Looking at the first photo, I said to myself - right, I can see the difference here, definitely 'Ukon'. But then I edited another photo, same tree. Same story?
