I am sitting in my garden room listening to the wind howling round this monster of a tree. It is over 70’ tall with three trunks that I can’t put my arms round. Once again the men are coming in the morning to cut it down, once again the weather is against it. When we moved in we had the tree topped, this was 5 years ago the top is back to its original height. The reason it has three trunks is it was hit by lightning 18 years ago but grew again. I love trees but this one is a monster that moves in the wind and I fear for my greenhouse. If any one is considering planting one please think long and hard where you put it and do keep it trimmed. If luck is on my side the wind will abate and the men will arrive in the morning and then the only damage will be to my purse.
