Pretty much all of these implementation considerations are just creative challenges. They're not lethal until we name our constraints.

Everyone on this site knows that renderings don't reflect reality, and that the city's track record suggests a certain, shall we say, "comfort zone". As far as what something like this would actually look like, the sobering thing is that the city tends to want to harmonize its designs, so my best guess would be that the barrier would basically resemble the best of any hemi-lane median we have going, simply shunted to one side.

We can wonder about trees, but my impression is that the prevailing practice favours low plantings rather than any kind of tree, so it's entirely possible we'd get nothing taller than a boxwood.
