the best maple tree
My next door neighbor wants to replace a tree where she removed a giant oak about 2 years ago.
She spoke with an arborist who told her maples don't do well in the greater Atlanta area, due to pollution. (We are in Marietta.)
This arborist also recommended a honey locust tree instead, which she bought and planted.
Some of our other neighbors laughed and said there are HUNDREDS of these trees, growing like weeds down in the creek area behind their house. THey said they are much like mimosa, and somewhat invasive.
So -- she is bummed out about the locust tree and is thinking maybe the person she spoke with didn't give her the best advice.
