Back To Work And The Euc

Bins emptied--back to work!

Double good; empty bins and a crew appeared next door to removed the fallen Blue Eucalyptus branch that had fallen into our garden.  The removal took hours.

The crew could have trimmed the tree properly so that it would grow in a healthier manner.  They did not.  The silhouette of the tree is now that of an upside down "L", with the shorter length of the "L" now hanging over the uphill neighbor's pool, where it will drop all the Blue Euc crap it creates.  How nice!  The trimmers left two large (24" in diameter) dead branches, and many smaller dead branches mixed in with live growth--they were instructed only to remove the fallen branch--which they did.  
With debris removed, the area where the large branch snapped off and left a jagged place on the trunk is clearly visible.

After the branch-removers departed, there was Euc litter everywhere.  The fallen branch scraped off about half the foliage one of the golden Cypress, which I'll have to cut down--Cypress do not re-sprout from bare wood.  But I am happy that branch is gone.  Now, back to roses.

  1. It is good that the branch has been removed from your garden but the jagged edge on the trunk looks terrible, you would have thought they would have removed that as well and left a neat cut. Sorry that your Cypress is damaged.

    1. Most of the rest of their trees look much worse! The Cypress--it's okay. The other neighbor's invasive Ficus roots are ruining that whole area, so I'm going to leave it empty and not irrigated, so the Ficus roots look elsewhere.

  2. Wait, somebody PAID a company to come out and do some work and leave the tree looking like that? Good lord.

    1. They were instructed to do what they did. Like I said, you should see the rest of their trees. That one looks good.

  3. It's hard to believe that the home owners thought just removing the broken limb fixed the problem - or that the tree service didn't provide them some guidance. I'll be surprised if that tear isn't infected with some form of disease down the road.

    1. There are some extenuating circumstances--but, yeah.

    1. Or be able to choose not to have neighbors at all.
