Tidy up (Betula pendula (Silver birch)q)

I've been lopping the Silver Birch. It's still a weird shape, but there's so much more light now...:))

Hmmm Hi Janey! You've got me looking 'cross-eyed' at my red maple. It's out-grown its space and is sucking up all the moisture in the whole garden. Hardly anything else can grow. How's the olive farm by the way?

Ours looks an odd shape,post pruning...they do grow quickly,Janey.

Hi Paul....that's the problem with trees in a small garden, and the type of tree. I love the Birches, they are so good for cleaning pollution from the air. Maybe it's time to control the Maple..
Ahh, the olive farm was quite a few years ago now, but last time I visited, all was well, the olive trees pruned and well cared for and the terraced garden, looked beautiful..:))

I know Meadow, I love the bark...so really would like to keep a stump with a birdhouse on the top. So far I haven't the heart to take it down so far and kill it.

We've done exactly that,Janey....the Birch has a good stable divide halfway up suitable for the birdhouse to be positioned.
