Bad Tree Choices

This story and photo gallery caught my eye, and I thought you might find it interesting. It shows 11 trees that you should never plant in your yard for the problems they can cause.

It's so prevalent that newscasters give the pollen count during pollen season.

Another no-no tree is a willow, which I take exception to as we had a big, beautiful one in our yard when I was growing up. It gave great shade for several tables and chairs when we had parties outside.

What trees do you have in your yard that have caused you problems? In our last house, we had a big palm tree that was dangerous when it had to be trimmed because of the big spikes in the palms.
