Re: foundation plantings NOW Red Cedars


I just went out and measured, and they are each about 105" in circumference and very tall. The pecan tree is probably twice that size.

Zem, how big are their trunks? I wonder how old my cedars are? The trunk of
one we recently had to take down (storm damage) must have been at least 20"
in diameter. There are larger ones on the property, but I'd have to go
measure.

The two red cedars in front of my house and the native pecan tree in my back

yard have been estimated to be about 150 years old. Needless to say they
are huge, and the cedars definitely show damage from the weather. It is
strange to believe these trees were little when there was a war going on
around here.

In a message dated 2/26/05 10:27:
.  We have a very tall
two story which we built in 1989 and 4 trees (now lg trees) that are
relatively near the house but all are in good locations.  We have a
Japanese tree lilac at the corner of the front of the house and I have
often though to my self 'thank god I positioned that correctly'.
   Some shrubs were planted nearer to our Blue Spruce & Concolor them
should be but I planted with the idea I would move them when the
growth of the BS & C was large enough as I was trying to create a
screen.
