Here are a few trees that will be
going, going, gone from
the garden in the future.
First a large ornamental weeping cherry.
It is only 'fabulous' for one week
in Spring...and doesn't do a great deal
It also has a nasty rotten bit in the middle.
Second: a russet maple
This has been badly pruned
and is really only half a tree.
Third: cheek and jowl with the russet maple
is a wattle. One of the few natives in the garden.
It is quite pretty but hangs out over the drive
and I have to keep chopping it back.
Fourth and final: A weeping pussy willow,
that reminds me of, Cousin It!
When in leaf, it isn't that attractive
and without leaves it is just a mess.
It too has been badly pruned and is a disaster
underneath. It also puts up suckers.
The other reason these trees are going
is they are taking up valuable room
and I think I could fit
about six fruit trees in their places.
