These are all I have. I have got the top half of Almond tree cut back as I could not manage with the huge volume of dry leaves that fall twice a year. See those leaves there - so huge. Where could I put that mountain of leaves in my small garden? I do compost part of it, mulch some and also use it as fuel [for our hot water boiler]. Even then, it was too much. Now what I do is to break the young branch tips and keep it outside the gate. Someone will carry them out most likely to feed his cows or goat/sheep. I'm happy with that. The tree is estimated to be ninety to hundred years old. I do not know the ages of the other two trees. I have 3 papaya plants right now.
