This is what happens when you leave Mark and his dad alone with a chainsaw...
To be fair they didn't get too carried away - one of the reasons we bought our house were the lovely trees in the backyard - a big Peppermint, two nice Banksias, a scruffy looking Tuart and some other miscellaneous Australian trees..
Now it's cleared it looks loads better but still nice and shady.
Here's a test for any green-fingered Antipodeans out there - what is this tree? -
It had small pink flowers a couple of months ago and now has those funny little nut... things.
