Re: Do you own a tree?

Yeah,several.I inherited a nice beame with the house and planted a laburnum and alemanchier(juneberry) beside it.Makes a nice group,and somewhere to hang christmas lights!I do like trees,except for the four at the rear of my house-a chestnut,a sycamore and 2 laburnums.They are only 14 feet from my house but belong to an elderly lady who lives behind us.Much too big and we are smothered in leaves all autunm,specially the chestnut ones which are huge!Still like the trees though!

Re: Do you own a tree?

Sure do. In my back garden I have, three Salix alba x Salix babylonica (golden weeping willows), two Buddleia davidii, a 15m long x 4m high Chamaecyparis x leylandii hedge (10 trees in total) and a Eucalypti.globulus (Southern Blue Gum) to remind me of home.

I also have Buxus sempervirens (Box tree) and a Picea abies (norway spruce) in my front garden.

Love sitting in my garden on a dry day and enjoying the greenery!!

Re: Do you own a tree?

Apart from the decidedly dead-looking Christmas tree, we have no trees! Moved house during the summer, and haven't had a chance to do any planting yet. Will be a couple of Winter Cherry's going in in April/May - had one at our old place, and loved it.

Re: Do you own a tree?

We have a few trees, I don't feel I own them. I'm just looking after them for a bit. And i want to plant a few silver birch. I find the way their leaves rustle and sparkle is quite magical.

You cannot own a tree, a tree does what it wants to no matter what you order it to do

Re: Do you own a tree?

Nope, had a few overgrown bushes in the back garden when we moved in, but we're hacking them down in prep for turfing over the beds for 100% lawn in the garden

Re: Do you own a tree?

Ash, Limes, Silver Birches, a Christmas tree and some fir tree things that were supposed to be dwarf but got out of hand and Yews.... plenty of pruning to do so we've got one of those branch eating machines.... one of the quiet ones that 'cuts and crushes' rather than 'chops'.... brilliant machine

2 monkey puzzle trees and an acer, all new and small at the moment as they are replacements for the fruit trees I had taken out.
