I have a huge juniper to remove in autumn. Victim of phytophthora I think and it is has been a superb blue pyramid for 30 years. Luckily the dying area is mostly on the unnoticed side so far. Trimmed annually to 15' tall and wide it will be a difficult job getting it out. I will.....nothing has ever stopped me. Leylandii trees, sycamores, hollies and others looked impossible but they are long gone. Some cursing helps with the energy. I will enjoy it though
So, my preparation Lou is in planning out the planting when the juniper has been removed. Plants are growing on and some mature plants will be moved across. A generous 20 x 20' area so I think it will look good when done.
