Tree alignment plays an important role in shaping the busy urban roadways. These types of trees play a crucial role in rendering ecosystem services, while, at the same time, imparting a characteristic image of the place. The sustainable management of the species used in these alignments as well as the process of replacing them with other species are two of the major issues which fall under the scope of specialists concerned with ensuring a high quality urban environment. In light of the constantly changing climatic factors and an increasingly polluted urban environment, the studies on the alignments from Kiseleff Boulevard give rise to discussions on the choice of the most suitable tree species for an urban area with high traffic. Moreover, the use of species must be done after a rigorous selection and after studying the local environmental conditions. Apart from that, in order to preserve the efficient ecosystem services, it is essential to properly manage the trees that are currently found in the previously mentioned alignments. The tree's health, its visual impact, the shading capacity, the age are just a few basic elements that shape and restore the image of a boulevard that is a landmark of the urban area of Bucharest. Dendrometrical studies have brought forward the direct link between the age and the state of the tree (its health) on the one hand and the ability to adapt of the studied species to the specific conditions of the Bucharest urban environment on the other.
