Help with Mexican Palo Verde

kidsmoke(z8 AZ)April 21, 2013

Hi all, need some help in figuring out what to do with this Mexican Palo Verde. The trunk is 17" in diameter and it's sitting 5 1/2" from the foundation of the house. I was going to trim the branches back to get it off the roof, however it appears that previous owners have done this in the past and I'd like to find a permanent solution.

We are thinking just cut it down. Transplant costs would be prohibitive at this time. We love the tree and wish that it had been planted in a better spot.

Any suggestions or other ideas?

It's too close to the house. I would remove it.

Yes, it's too big to transplant, it needs to be cut down. I love these trees, maybe you can find a small one to plant in a more appropriate spot?

Thanks for the replies! We have a wide open backyard to work with and we'll most likely end up with a palo verde planted.
