Right tree, wrong place?

Here’s a wall, built of lovely Longcliffe limestone, looks great, but for how long? Maybe in less then 10 years the maple will have uprooted the wall, or maybe less.

It won’t cost too much to rebuild the wall and it won’t do the tree too much harm, but it’s these considerations that need to be looked at when you’re thinking about removal or building around obstructions such as trees, sheds, buildings, existing walls, patios, stumps and a whole host of other stuff.

What do you think?
