Advice on building my pool around this Palm Tree
We're having a in ground gunite pool installed in a couple of weeks. I've attached an image with measurements to give you a good view of what we're doing to get your best advice.
This tree is about 5 years old now and is about 15' from the ground to the top of the frawns. The trunk base is now 20' measuring from left to right. Don't remember exactly what species it is, but I do remember that we purposely DID NOT buy the ones that grow up to like 50' or 60'. I believe this tree was rated to max out somewhere around 30' or so.
My question is...am I giving this tree enough clearance from the pool for future growth at the base? From what I've read so far, the Palm roots grown downwards and should not pose a problem. I'm having the contractors add double the amount of rebar in that curved area around the tree before they shoot the gunite to add strength just in case.
So do you think we'll be ok with the room we're allocating?
Thank you so much in advance.
