Not if you have an 85 ft/ 26 meters tall Norfolk Island tree in your font yard...like me. It's an extremely messy tree!

And the spiny cones can weigh up to 15 pounds (almost 7 kg!) Ouch!!

You don't want to get me started! Last year I had thousands of seeds all over my neighborhood from my tree. Also, sometimes the weight of the cones will bring down huge branches.
