Hi again, fellow gardeners!

Following up from an older question about arborvitaes, our wonderful property manager forgot that I requested not to have the arborvitaes planted, so now it feels painful to have them removed. But anyway, I have another issue which is how close they planted this chokecherry tree to our house. Neighboring houses have larger lawns, so I get why they put trees on their yards, but ours is just going to be a pain in the neck in a few years. Do you agree or disagree? Should I have the tree removed as well? Thanks in advance!

Your Chokecerry is probably 'Canada Red'. They get about 20 - 25 ft tall and 15 ft wide. They grow more up then out, probably why it was chosen to replace the arborvitae.

To make me happy, the tree would have to be planted 10 ft. from the eves.
