Today we removed a large Douglas Fir because it had HUGE surface roots that had reached our house foundation. It was just a matter of time before it broke through the foundation.
It was planted by a non-gardening neighbour ten feet from our house about 35 years ago. We received permission from the town to remove it.
We had a dying birch in the back yard that needs to be removed. It was dropping whole dead branches constantly.
The rest of the work today has been final hedge trimming and sculpting and reining things in.
