Picea breweriana 2016

Our rather magnificent Picea breweriana on 27th May 2016 - a tree we planted nearly 30 years ago - sadly just after this we realised it had to go.

It was a hard decision but it had put on a growth spurt in the last few years and was out of proportion to the garden, no longer fitting in with the design. I suspect it cost us about ten times more to have it professionally cut down and the roots ground out than it did to purchase the original small tree! Sadly it was not possible to move it. You can see it in all its glory starring as an extra on some of the posts on a related blog Gunnera Watch
