trees
« on: March 07, 2017, 15:53 »
Well been lobbing chunks off my trees of which there are 8 and 2 smaller ones but the 8 go mad , i think some one had a bright idea of making a hedge unfortunatly no one kept a check on them so when we bought it they were quite big we lob off abit of the top each year and now they are getting to a managable  hight just need abit trimming for a better shape and im done .

The problem is they suck the life out of everything around them.  Everyone seems to have them around here, there's one a few doors down that is around 50ft  :wacko:
But I know what you mean & I will be planting different, smaller trees around the place  :D

We have several trees and it has taken a few years to get the apple trees to a manageable state. Hopefully will be moving 5 this year...2 are in pots

Well got all my trees done many scratches later but there done and got a good bit off the top and a better shapes as well they are brown at the back i think it may be because they are close to the fence maybe with a good trim the backs may  green up. .

Just got to be careful with cutting down some trees as some are protected by local law, so it's worth checking that out beforehand.

We only moved in a couple of years back and there are no protected trees on our property 😊👍

Do not burn any part of the yew as it is toxic
