Hello. Haven't been in the new home very long, so I don't know if they flower or have fruit. Any help appreciated.

Hi123dave123, Welcome!

The plant in the last photo is Pencil Tree (Euphorbia tirucalli)

I think the first is Privet (Ligistrum)

The second is a really nice Pencil Tree.

Thank you .

Curious confidence that the tree is a Privet.

If so, it should flower, correct?

I need space to plant an avacado tree, I would hate to get rid of something really nice. Don't worry, I would give it to a guy I know that wants trees, not destroy the tree :)

I would gladly eliminate a privet to make room for an Avacado.

Just keep in mind that Avocados get to be very large trees, with large root zone, and year round leaf drop. Well worth it if you have room for them.

Good info, carol. Perhaps I should put the avacado elsewhere. That area is not that big.
