I am not against exotic plants but I certainly won’t go out of my way to plant them and when I choose I try to stick to indigenous. So when it came time to decide if our leopard tree was worth the mess and hours of pool cleaning, it was a clear no. It also blocked out a lot of light from our lounge and new veggie beds. So this week it was coming out. The guys took 2 days to cut it down and trim some of our other trees. The difference is amazing and its is so nice to get more light into our garden.
The branches and trunk have amazing camou patterns on it and will make stunning bed borders and garden decor.
