Palm Tree Dilemma
A man knocked on our door tonight and offered us $1,500.00 for our palm tree in the front yard. That's what he does for a living--drives around and finds mature palm trees for landscape jobs that need them. I have to admit, it's tempting. I didn't like the tree at all when we first saw the house. It's a beautiful tree, but I'm just not a palm tree type of girl. But it's kind of grown on me. It's huge (26 ft), blocks the view of the power lines, and adds a bit of character. I'm going to plant a native oak woodland garden under regardless of whether it stays or goes, but maybe we could use that money to buy a decent sized oak to put in its place. I told my neighbor about the offer and he said "you're not going to do it are you?!?" I just don't know! Jose says he's ok with selling it. What do we do??
