Acer is a botanical name... no way would a WIPO have succeeded without bad faith being clearly shown..

Acer = Maple for those who aren't botanically minded like what I is :rolleyes2:

I like the way you think. In this case an Acer saccharinum ("silver" maple) sale.

Another example of a good win-win end-user sale and once put to use by Acer it will be a nice, short, memorable URL for them to use and promote.

Pinus sylvestris you mean... they don't look good pruned hard.. you can't shape them - best left natural shape (i.e. height & spread) but maybe thinned to let a bit more light & wind through than mother nature intended.. :coo2l:

It depends what you're worried about?

Many folk get worried that the tree/s will coome down in a strong wind and crush the house to rubble and kill everyone inside..

The reality is that trees tend to fall against houses rather than 'through' houses... especially at 10ft away... there's no distance for any momentum to be built up.. the worst you'd get is your eaves broken, the guttering and a few broken slates.. often the weakest side (root wise) is the house side - meaning the tree is more likley to fall away from the house than towards it.. (depends on prevailing winds etc..)

As for light... I'm guessing that they don't rob much light if they're that close as the canopies will be 20ft above your eaves leaving your windows fairly clear?

feel free to email a couple of pics if you want an opinion.. :coo2l: (don't want you getting ripped *** by the local pikey! lol :rolleyes2:)

Hey, c'mon, we've got a nice tree discussion going on here...why ruin it with business talk? :wink:

So, ND, how do I get my eucalyptus dalrympleana not to die *** every winter here in the Seattle area?

Eucalypts are funny here in the UK... they look so pretty at 6ft tall in a nice pot at the Garden Centre... A few short years later people are wondering what happened to that 'little tree' they planted 3ft away from the house as it's shot up above the roofline! :laugh: Always made me laugh when I saw one.... they grow so fast it always catches people out..

This is what I have(2 trees) in front of the house.
I really like the dramatic showdown of the deep crimson leaves. The problem is, it gets tooooo hot where I've planted them. It faces west and in USDA zone 10 like where I live, it burns the leaves. I've planted it last yr when I first moved, will see how it does one more yr( as roots will have gotten established further by now).

Seattle!, I envy you. You can grow Peonies there--cold enough. They are so pudgy and elegant looking in full bloom. Endless specie varieties too. Can't grow them here in Southern Cali.

My backyard has water wise California, Australian or South African Native plants. Pomegranate(Punica Granatum), lemon and Turkish Fig trees. Hope to see them bearing more fruits this yr as it was young when I got them last year.

We all sound like bunch of gardening geeks! :laugh:

Seattle is fairly mild in winter, actually (at least compared to Boston, where we lived before this) -- but we had a week down below 15 degrees this winter, which damaged a lot of plants. Some eucalyptus varieties do pretty well here.

I planted a Sambucus 'Black Lace' last year...it's coming back nicely this year.

'trix, we've got several peonies growing, and you're right, they do well here. Very large blossoms that will pull the plant down if they aren't supported. I've got a fig tree too, that's 3 years old now and it's doing pretty well. Had a couple figs the first year, but none last year. We'll see how it does this year.

You should see our blueberries -- gallons of 'em each spring from our 6 mature plants!

That is what I haven't yet done but, thought of doing. As I like the flower of blueberries; they look natural and 'wild' flower like in a smallish spray kinda way. Plus I'd appreciate some blueberries--expensive to buy at groceries. Do they(spread & height) get very big? I'm running out of gardening space. Every foot of it has something growing in them :laugh:

Not really very tall, but they can get overgrown if you let them, so just trim out the old growth yearly -- it helps them grow blueberries more vigorously anyway.

Ah, trees...

Here in Aussie I'm surrounded by 80 ft tall Eucalyptus gum trees - a National Park, actually. Its a lovely wonderland...but...the thing is, giant Eucalyptus gums LOVE fire - in fact, they need fire to prosper!! So, its a worry...

In 1994, a raging fire came through - 80 ft high wall of flame, at 80mph, came straight at us!!...30 ft from the house, it veered ***....Burned everything in sight, and left our house standing in the middle of a lunar landscape! Wow....

Also, there's a leaf & bark falling season...the gums drop vast quantities of leaves, and peel *** all their bark....Place looks like a battlefield 3 months of the year...

And, these gum trees suddenly drop giant branches for no apparent reason....Can be hairy.


But, for all that....Its gorgeous...:)

I haven't tested the soil around our blueberries, but it must be quite acidic, because we get gallons of big blueberries every year.

DT, eucalyptus are great trees (but as you said, prone to limb drop) -- one of my favorite places in Hawaii is Tantalus on Oahu, where you can drive up through the eucalyptus groves and the smell is incredible!

Yes, you live in blueberry heaven. The northwest in general is great, I have fond childhood memories of visiting relatives in Vancouver area and grazing on their huge, sweet blueberries straight from the bushes. They had about a 1/4 acre all planted out in blueberries. My chore was to scare away the birds.

Tks for the tip Dag, Scandi & Coast.
I see it needs acidic soil to do well, I have clay like chalky soil, which I believe is quite alkaline ; I have amended when I moved in last year. Adding top soil plus tons of c***ee grounds discard that I got fro free from the local Starbucks c***ee shops for extra Nitrogen and eggshells( kitchen waste) crunched up and buried along with it for some Calcium for good measure to make more acidic and nutrient rich soil. As a result, it yielded decent volume of tomatoes, squash,beets and lettuce thrived and helped to cut the grocery bill.
I'm gonna think further about blueberries, as space is an issue and seem like I need to have at least 2 blueberry plants to pollinate.

@DT: Ecalyptus oil from Australia is one of my favorite home spa/remedy items. But, never knew about the natural disaster side of it b4. But, yes, as they produce gummy tar like substance, it make sense that they'd attract fire.
