What Were They Thinking?

Sometimes OUR MOTHER EARTH doesn’t leave enough growing space on her behalf trees and shrubs. Once the vegetation start growing out in the open they have to do the best they can with the space they have. The trio of trees in this top photo, a cherry (Prunus serotina) and two longleaf pines (Pinus palustris) are having issues.

The cherry’s major surface origins have a stranglehold around both of the pines and finally the pines will become weakened at their bases as they try to expand and the cherry tree’s origins expand as well. At this time the cherry tree trunk is approximately a foot in diameter, but it and the pines shall continue steadily to grow.

The pines can be a threat in this suburban lawn and are likely to blow over in a exotic storm. It’s possible that all three of them should come down collectively throughout a wind event. A magnolia planted itself too close to a sprinkler head. It’s best to take care of moving plants that volunteer in the wrong spaces before they get too large. Here a southern magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora) planted itself too close to the sprinkler mind. There are oaks within as well.

The oaks are abundant in my yard and I’ll just draw them out, however the magnolias are worthy of saving for their beauty and evergreen habit. I’ve root pruned this baby so that it will generate new roots closer to its trunk and can have a better chance of making it through the transplant. I’ll move it this winter.

Winter is our dry season, therefore i won’t do that unless I understand that we won’t be traveling for per month or two so that I could have a tendency to its irrigation. One place I will not place a magnolia is in the middle of the yard. These trees lose their big leathery leaves throughout the year and it’s just too much work to get after them. When we first relocated into this house, transplanting the two magnolias from the middle of the front yard was one of our first landscaping design projects.

And with other vegetation across the magnolias, I would not have needed to be concerned about the continuous magnolia leaf drop. A road planting task in Orange Park, FL: Crepe myrtles in the median strip and longleaf pines under the energy lines. Whenever we design landscapes, we ought to be smart enough so our woody plants have sufficient room to develop and are positioned in order that they won’t need much corrective pruning to match into the landscape, but guess what?

We are not that smart. In Orange Park, a town in Clay County in northeast Florida, a road-widening project was completed off with sound barrier wall space on either part and then with plantings of mostly native trees and shrubs. But someone didn’t think about the future and like so many projects, today it was planted so that it looks good. While there are the non-native, over-planted crepe myrtles (Lagerstroemia indica) in the median strip, the other trees are natives-the longleaf pine (Pinus palustris) and the ‘East Palatka’ holly (Ilex x attenuata ‘East Palatka’).

The hollies are probably a good choice because they only develop to 30 or 40 ft tall and have a concise conical form with a spread of only 10 to 15 foot. This holly is a natural cross types between I. cassine x I. opaca-it was uncovered in 1927 growing near East Palatka, FL.
