Re: OT - the tree is coming down

Schinus molle, California pepper. When I was a really little kid--<4 years--we lived in a farm house that had a large one for a shade tree in the back yard. I've always liked them, but they are messy, and it's very difficult to grow anything under them, even grass. Also they are somewhat brittle, given to shattering. But they are also drought tolerant.

A Crepe Myrtle- oh bah! I'm so sick of seeing those trees- they are
every where here. There's got to be something more interesting than
that. I was admiring a "California pepper" tree down the street earlier
this week (don't know it's real name)- but I love the feathery/fern-like
leaves. Anybody know more about this tree? (or for that matter do you
even know what tree I'm talking about?)

Expensive yes, worth it, absolutley. Made it worse since I had to pay for a
crown this week - ouch. But that tooth was in worse shape than the tree and
it had to be done. I'm already pondering on what to plant (probably a crape
to fill in all that open space and provide shade for that mahonia that will
get too much sun now that the tree is gone.
