Front Yard and Overgrown Trees

It was not so much a yard but a piece of land with bushes and wild nut trees growing on it.  It looked like no one had touched it for 20 years.  Uncared for and untended, abandoned really, except for an overgrown rose bush that seemed to hold some potential, still.  This was March, 2006, early Spring and a handful of Japanese irises were beginning to shoot up next to the rose.  Otherwise there was nothing but weeds and overgrown wild self-sown trees.

We had to take the tree down immediately.  It had been planted by a squirrel maybe 10-15 years earlier and was a hazelnut tree that grew right next to the house.  Since the soil around it had piled up and created a hill of dirt that was above our foundation level we realized the water would continue seeping into the basement as it had for many years previously.  Our neighbor was very happy when we cut the tree down as she had been cleaning its nut deposits for years from her driveway and the baby nut trees it had been forming along side it.
