Re: update on garden/bottle brush

Unfortunately, when people buy homes, they look at the price of trees and decide to wait until they can afford them. What they fail to realize is the value trees ultimately add. I once read that those having a house built should plant trees before investing in a lawn or other landscaping, and do it even before they move in.

Anti-tree?  Now that's strange and interesting.  Don't think I've
heard of that before...seems like mostly people are gung ho to plant
huge, inappropriate forest type trees on small suburban lots.

So, are those just big shrubs I think I see in that photo of yours -
looks like across the street?  Do you have any trees?

Not sure Ceres.. most folks here are anti tree. (which I will never
understand) and maybe a half dozen folks have planted a tree other
the ones the contractor did in the parkways. We don't seem to have
problem at the nature center, but that is miles away from me.
