Looked outside to see a tree-removal truck with backing into the driveway across the street. I expect that the evergreen tree had to come down because of its coming so close to a power line that runs across the street. Still, I was sorry to see it go.
Some trees were removed from the boulevard in front of the house to the south of ours, quite a few owners ago, and they’ve never been replaced. I’d like that to change. However, those neighbors have had frequent problems with roots clogging the sewer pipes, while we haven’t, situated on the other side of two driveways. Would not volunteer to have trees to the east of us. The tall bushes in our back yard, although they have trouble growing in the wet and damp, have no pipes to sink their roots into.
