It’s no surprise that I love this tree in our front yard and maybe no surprise that Keith doesn’t! It’s right over our walkway and at 6’4 he’s a lot taller than me. I know it’s a “weeping” tree but I don’t know what kind. I tried to look it up and it has leaves that look like a weeping persimmon tree but there is no fruit. Any guesses at to what kind of tree it is?
We had a tree service out a year ago and they trimmed it back along with trimming/removing all the trees close to the house but it did need trimming again. Even I had to duck under it to walk to the front door. Keith is a bit of a klutz so it makes me nervous when he does work around the house. Climbing on ladders and cutting limbs off makes me VERY nervous.
He came through with no injuries (this time) but my tree came out on the losing end! I know it needs to be kept away from the house and that people need to be able to walk up the sidewalk but it kills me to see it trimmed back so far. Luckily, I know from past experience that it will grow quickly!
We have a “natural” yard so Keith dragged the branches out back and at least the deer are happy! Looks like it’s snack time. (That pine branch that’s mixed in was a casualty of the moving truck.)
