.....You got lots of trees, T'bird? They certainly make a mess at this time of year.....
See original post
We have a fair few number of trees in and around us MU. Put it this way. We moved here 5 years ago (medium size garden) and we've taken out 15 trees....
Before anyone gets upset with that thought I would say most of them were either diseased or very poorly positioned, most of them were less than 15 years old and I have (so far) replaced them with 12 much nicer (IMO) specimens. There will be at least one more going in next month, weather permitting.
The main culprits for leaf drop are 2 ash trees, a copper beech and 3 silver birches - all very mature and well over 30 foot high. The birches are in ND's garden but the prevailing winds bring the leaves down in mine. Fortunately they're good for composting (My name is T'bird and I'm a compostaholic )
Lovely to see the snowdrops Dove. I had a look yesterday but no sign of mine yet.
