The Poplar Tree



My opinion of poplar trees is that they are just giant weeds.  When we were in New Mexico they treasure the poplars, apparently they are the only thing that grows. Our neighbors had one that had even grown into the cyclone fence.  It was a huge tree, however it dropped branches regularly and on a windy day we didn't dare to hang around under it. The neighbors decided to put in a privacy fence and took that opportunity to cut down the tree. It was quite an undertaking.  We didn't lose much shade because it was on the north side of our lot but it sure opened up the space.  Taking out the tree and the fence will certainly tear up my garden but it can be fixed. The tree people sure tore up the neighbors yard
