Provides cover for the songbirds at my feeders

    My Grandma Ghost is 20' tall and wide, in a more or less round shape. I thought it would be a smaller tree, but it is working well for me. I sited this at the east side of a covered porch and it provides good coverage for the songbirds who frequent my feeders along the eaves of the porch. I have pruned it to keep it somewhat open and not become a total screen.
