Tulsa has created decorative medians in a number of places. This is driving north on Yale Avenue between South 51st and 61st Streets. Trees, primarily Bradford pears, are planted in a raised center faced with brick. Bradford pears are so widely planted as to be dismissed by some as over used. The reason they are so widely used is that they have many virtues; they bloom prolifically in the early spring, they are hardy during both the hot summers and cold winters, turn to a nice color in the fall, and bear small fruit that are eaten by birds during the winter.
