Espeically if you live in Brisbane and surrounds.
So, we had a massive tree in the backyard which was attacking the pipes with it's roots, dropping leaves and flowers 24/7 BUT was excellent shade for the kids. The last straw came when this summer it lost all it's leaves, so wasn't even providing much shade and we had it cut down!
But now our backyard is soooo hot!
So off I went to the Nursery to find a replacement tree, but the guy gave me so many options, none of which I really liked the look of, and now I'm even more confused!
So do you have a great shade tree in your backyard (that isn't too messy, wont attack my pipes, and is fairly fast growing)?
