After a dismal morning the sun broke out , so DH and I decided to go for a walk. I have a bit of a dodgy ankle and it wasn't long before I went over on it due to tree roots lifting the tarmac and causing the foot path to be very uneven. Luckily DH caught my arm before I went down on my a**.
Why do people plant trees in the wrong place?
Whenever we have moved house I have had to cut down trees in the wrong place (ones in the right place are safe!). Our last drive was pushed up by the dreaded tree roots. When we moved to this house we had to chop down two eucalyptus trees , our new neighbors thanked us as they now had light in their dining room.
When our local supermarket opened they thought it a good idea to plant saplings in front of every other parking space, making it harder to park and now dropping wet leaves all over the cars and making the ground slippery in the rain.
I have nothing against trees as you can tell by my GN name. I love my cherry trees. I also have a lovely Rowan tree , an apple tree and a Magnolia all planted away from hard ground and windows. I also live by a beautiful forest
But can't understand why people don't consider that most trees grow big and have roots that can cause damage and inconvenience to others!
