Beech muffled by no-die boxwood
Whyizzit, that even though every other bush we cut to
"rejuvenate" dies, the bush that we WANT to die, grows back?!
Hi Janet and Steven. Happy New Year. I purchased a home with
boxwood trees closely circling a Beechwood tree. They looked
ridicules (trimmed flat on top to remind us of a "mustache" around
the tree). So my husband started hacking and removed the boxwoods
down to the roots. That was in the summer. Now they are starting to
come back. Question: how do we permanently remove the ring of
boxwoods, without harming the Beechwood tree? - N.T. -
That's the situation! For the answer, come back here in a
few weeks, or watch it unfold at our Forum.
