Looking for tree ideas for zone 10a
Per my HOA...I have to add several trees to my property to re-landscape. I live in zone 10a. I have 1 existing Olive tree. The planned community surrounding me has been based on Oak Trees. I have a dog that is allergic to bees. She has been hospitalized...twice due to being stung by bees!! What type of trees would you suggest? Thank you, Pamela Dix

Since your dog is allergic to bees, flowering shrubs and trees may be out of the question. Take a tour through a garden center and ask their advice. Here are some low flowering suggestions:
Evergreen elm may be nice if you have space for the spreading and weeping canopy.
Many conifers get huge, but there are some dwarf varieties that may be appropriate.https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/growing-dwarf-conifer-trees.htm
