After considering zoning laws related to digging and planting, climate and temperature, and probably a bit of advice from professionals and a handy book for would-be tree owners, the Arbor Day Foundation Plant Hardiness Zones which divides the US and Canada into 11 temperature zones to help you determine the general expected moisture, soil, and winds in your locality (http://shop.arborday.org/content.aspx?page=zone-lookup).

Examples are oaks, eucalyptus, pine, hemlock, blue spruce, red cedar, and larch. When choosing trees for a hot garden, choose those that do not require regular watering. There are also a wide variety of evergreens for hot climates.
