The house next to me used to have an old growth Walnut and an old growth Pine tree. Huge soaring things. They've both been cut down, the Pine going just this spring. Both trees were on the east side of my backyard and cast a lot of shade in the morning hours. I was sorry to see them go, though I'm not so sorry that I no longer have black walnuts in my yard.

I currently have a city owned tree, maybe 30 years old, in my front yard and an apple tree that I planted 25 years ago in my back yard. I just had the apple pruned to produce better fruit. I'm looking forward to a crop this year.
