How to Choose the Right Tree

How to Choose the Right Tree

It is not easy to choose the right tree.
Some trees are so fragile a storm will uproot them.
You don't want those trees near your roof.
Some have a shade so dense they’ll choke other trees.
Then there are those that will take over
and turn your garden into their own turf.
Some trees will poison and kill their neighbours.
Others are greedy and always thirsty.
They break your pipes in search for water
and leave your back yard barren and dry.
Never plant a tree so close to your house
that it can thrust its roots through your floorboards
and spread its limbs over your windows,
and block the sun.
