Large Hardy Tropical Trees

Anonymous added on May 24, 2014 | Answered

What large tropical trees can I plant in California's Central Valley that will withstand the wind, heat (summer) and frost (winter), other than palms? I purchased some banana trees but the wind is breaking the leaves, and did I mention I have no shade either. Thanks.
