I\'ve had and arborist look at it and he told me there\'s nothing that I can do as this is its \"growing habit\" and my regular experienced gardener has said the same before that. I\'d like to know what it is, as I don\'t recall from when it was planted. And, also, does anyone see a particular problem with it that I might address before I remove it? THANKS!
