Any tips for the management of very large gum tree, 50 yo, a metre from building? Arborist haskept it from dropping branches for past 10 years & its the largest tree on the street. How do I make sure it can stay for ever?
Nell Butler

(plumbing has already been replaced due to it getting into old pottery pipes so that's no longer a huge concern and we get pipes checked every 6 months just in case)

What should you do with your tree if you have made the mistake or creating a sump in heavy clay? Particularly if the type of tree does not like root disturbance, In my case an avocado, transferred from a large pot into ground. thanks.

Can you recommend a tree for fence on north side of house - mainly for privacy as there is a two storey house close to boundary on the other side of the fence
Kim Pearson

Trivial question: if you had to pick a native tree/plant to train as a bonsai, what would you pick? (Tiny tree instead of a small tree!)
Irene Brown

Would Lilly billy be a good choice along the east boundary fence - I am looking for something relatively fast growing to act as a screen (as there is an apartment block to be built on the other side!)
