Maple Trees

Category: Pianolady's Gardens | Posted: Sun Jun 15, 2008 1:17 am

After spending the past two weeks hoeing, digging, and pulling maple trees from the property front to back, I thought I'd never want to see another maple tree again. The last straw was picking every little maple tree out of the slats of the boardwalk one by one.

Then I went out on the deck to enjoy the shade of the backyard and quickly forgot what a pain it was (literally) to pick those maples. Some things are just worth the work.

It certainly looks beautiful.

I feel you pain pulling up trees, we don't have Maples but do have Pecan, Mimosa, Hackberry and Oak all over the yard.

The squirrels buried acorns all over our yard and this year we have little oak trees all over the yard. I am going to try to transfer two or three into a container to get larger and then put them back in the yard. Wannabe

Maples are lovely trees, despite their ability to plant themselves everywhere. Your boardwalk is lovely, I bet it's nice to walk barefoot on. :D

With a beautiful garden like yours to relax in after pulling up those maples I'd soon forget the backache too!!! Your whole garden is a credit to all the hard work you put into it.

I know exactly how you feel about maples. Here is a view of the back of our house with 100's of little maple trees growing in the gutter. My husband was thrilled.

Lovely view off of the deck. The view is worth the toil . . . I wholeheartedly agree.
