My garden has got two of these huge trees and they are ripping up our drive way. Ok, they are nice when they are young, but when they grow to be large and strong, they can cause considerable damage to pavement, concrete etc. These are also a fire hazard because of its dead conifer-like foliaged centre. Not to be planted near houses. pokerboy.
