That sounds good. I have always fancied an apple tree. The other reason I'm a bit sad about this, is that from a sitting point in the garden, this tree was what blocks out other houses and next door neighbour as it's right against the fence. I hope I can afford something of a good size. Would I have to get all the roots out too?
It's now dawning on me that the giant tree just behind our gardens is probably a sycamore, which will keep casting it's seed down. Cheers for the advice!
