The Q&A Archives: Trees

Question: We have a holly tree in front of our house and it is about 10 ft. tall. We've had different opinions about whether to cut it down or leave it grow. Thoughts?

Answer: Your holly will grow to 15-20 feet high at maturity so if you don't think there will be enough room in your yard, you might remove and replace it. But, if you have room and if the holly is healthy, I'd vote for leaving it alone. Hollies have beautiful shapes and the berries they produce feed birds all winter long. Hope you decide to keep it!
