One ancient sugar maple, 400 ft tall
It's been there for at least a hundred and fifty years and I'll be sad when it has to come down ....
Our two other old maples were cut down a few years ago due to disease
But we found a sapling from one of them and it's about twenty years old now, in where the old tree was. It's getting very tall. We also replaced the other old tree with a (non related) sapling. There's also a young tree behind the garage.
- A little cedar in the back yard
- Japanese maple
- An ancient honeysuckle and an equally ancient lilac. Before the branch fell on our yard, these two trees were about twenty feet wide, and just as tall.
- A Manitoba Maple that just suddenly sprouted up one day ... I think it's around ten years old now. It's getting huge!
- Some other random trees ... I forget and there's no way I'm wading in the snow to find out! I'll wait for spring
