Tree Inventory

IMG_2192

Yesterday while trimming the pomegranate, apple, and pyracantha, I decided to take inventory of the trees on our property. I’ve never done this and really had no idea how many we had.

THROUGHOUT PROPERTY

Live Oaks – Can’t begin to count, 100+
Cedar – 30+

FRONT YARD

Cedar Elm – I lived in the house a year before I noticed that this tree was different from the live oaks. The canopy is so high, that it was smaller leaves in fall that gave it away.

Have you ever tried trimming a tree with a cat in it? It makes branch selection a little more challenging

Sago Palm
Mulberry – bummed that this one is a male
