I made a comment recently regarding the lack of a tree in my back garden.
A tree would make a wonderful addition to my garden - not only would it provide a sense of privacy - a tree, particularly a native one would provide a beneficial environment for wildlife. My garden (to the back) is surrounded by other properties and often it feels like I garden in a goldfish bowl. I feel my garden big enough to afford the space for at least one small tree. I don't hanker or yearn for A specific tree - any tree would do really!
The reason there is no tree......Telephone wires! My garden is dissected at various points by those blasted things! Trees and Telephone wires don't mix! I speak from experience, in my old garden, a neighbours tree would continually hamper with the telephone wires. Those neighbours never bothered and eventually the telephone company took matters into their own hands - what a hefty bill they received! We were not popular neighbours!
There used to be a tree, Birch I think, over the back. It also began interfering with the lines and needed to be removed, this was about 4 years ago.
