  1. Thanks for your replies, I'll get it removed and then kill the roots, I think access might be awkward to grind the stump and no rush. Hopefully it can be done without damaging any plants around it too much. I did ask at the large, well known garden centre where it was bought as 'a shrub' and they didn't have a clue. All the growth has happened in a few years so I can see it will take over. Someone just told me to go to Chester zoo and borrow a koala to get it under control I live in the middle of Cheshire if anyone is near by for a quote. Thanks again.
  2. Hello, I don't know much about trees so I need some advice please. I have a eucalyptus tree that's getting carried away with itself, it's about 4 or 5ft from the back of the garage, I've attached a photo if it works, the garage is actually about 2ft lower than the garden level. The tree is getting too tall so I either want it pruning if that's possible or removing. I don't know whether it has shallow roots or not so do you think the tree roots will damage the garage if I get it pruned or should I just bite the bullet and have it removed now? Also, daft question but if I leave a stump so it may send up side branches as a shrub will the roots keep growing as vigorously and still possibly damage the garage? Thanks
