How tall?

24 Jun, 2013


This one is most likely around 60ft (18m) tall. The one in my front yard is 85ft (26m) and very messy. I've had millions of seeds everywhere for the last 7 months.

Norfolk Island Pines are extremely common trees here and they can grow to more than 200ft (61m) tall.

Wow! I like tall trees in their place, but would like it in my garden!!

You would like such a large tree in your garden?

Sorry! No typed that wrongly!!!

NO I Wouldn't Like Such A Large Tree in my garden!

My neighbour has planted a Beech Tree in his garden (luckily the opposite side of his garden from us)
and they grow Very Big, so I am a bit worried about that one!!
It has only been in from a sapling for a few years and already it must be getting towards 20 - 30 ft!!

They take up too much water to have in a small garden, besides overpowering everything else!!

Okay, now I understand. :>)

I have 3 major large trees in my front yard. The giant Norfolk Island Pine, Southern Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora) and a huge Jacaranda (Jacaranda mimosifolia). They do give good shade, which I need here in inland San Diego, CA.

Beautiful trees to give you shade anyway.

Yes, I do need the shade here. Starting tomorrow and for a week we're in for some extremely high heat here. I am already hating it! It's still very warm tonight at 1:12 a.m.
