WOA! Guess what, we are keeping that HUGE pine tree in our front yard! It is BIG. Now I’m not talking large, or slightly tall, I’m talking BIG… HUGE. We are a little concerned however to it’s safety – not sure if it’s healthy and likely to drop limbs? It is over 100 years old, it blocks a lot of sun from parts of the property, takes up a lot of our front lawn and allows nothing to grow below it… but we’re keeping it. There are between 10,000 and 20,000 reasons (insert “dollars”) to keep it we’ve found out. OUCH!
UPDATE – We have since found out that the tree is in fact in good health – phew – and I’m becoming rather attached to it. The grandfather of the garden.
