These trees are lucky...most of the time the tops get blown off during strong winds. It's a very brittle tree.

I had one at my other house...I know exactly what you talking about...ants, bees, crows and spiders loves this tree. It also constantly drops messy leaves.

Along the freeways and parks are the perfect spot for this tree. : > )
