|Clearly flaflwrgrl is not as enamored by this tree as I am. She is absolutely correct in all her assertions, but the tree is a gorgeous shape, and can be a stunning addition to any landscape. I saw the suckers off (they are quite soft and fleshy when young) and never let them get big, and so we keep it from becoming a huge mass. I believe it is most stunning in a group of no more than three or four trunks.
Sadly ours are getting almost too big for us to trim ourselves and we are contemplating taking one or two of them down. Or we can wait for the next storm to take them out: Wilma in 2005 took one of our five...
Maintenance is indeed quite a job with this tree, but I would not be without it.

|Hetty, I do agree with what you are saying. And I still love looking at these trees --- in someone else's yard.
But what I really wanted to say is that I think you should copy & paste your comment in the comment section in the database for this tree. I think it would be a valuable addition to the info. about it. Please do so.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
