Came for the kanji stats on [rK][sK]. (I am also suspicious about this being [news1] because this is *such* a common name.  But it's still a fairly common word, so whatever I suppose...)

Can't really compare the bare term because it's a common name. So I looked for some collocations. 

sankoku gives 並木, daijs gives only 並木.  only nikk lists 並樹, which feels like a historic form. Yourei has 50 actual results with 並樹, so it exists. 73 examples of 並み木. 4,338 examples of 並木。 And yourei, if my gut feeling isn't off, seems a bit overrepresented with old text (for copyright reasons I imagine).

On twitter, 並み木の下 has ~10 matches in the history of twitter. 樹木の下 actually gets a hit ~every other day. 並木の下 gets ~10 hits/day.
Based on the somewhat surprising twitter result, I'd guess I'd lean [rK] for 並樹. Might be being used for "poetic" effect. Should probably be visible in a result if searched for.  並み木 feels like a perfect [sK] candidate. Rare, nonstandard only in furigana, shouldn't be learned, should be searchable...

Wouldn't hate it though if 並樹 were also [sK]. 

Since I am here, also pluralized "roadside trees".
sankoku: 通りの両がわに並べて植えた木.  
I don't think 並ぶ can apply to *one* tree. Actually specifies that both sides of the road must be planted. I think you'd have to contort yourself to point at one roadside tree, and say "that one tree there is a 並木". 

This ref also had it pluralized:

Doesn't seem like an adj-no to me.

I don't have a problem with adding a dotless なみ to the kanjidic entry. It will appear in tomorrow's release.
