Okay did i say it was a hickory tree ? What I meant to say is it is a horse chestnut tree. Huge difference right ? I think I will need to move it away from the sidewalk. BTW Newt its so nice to chat again, it's been a long winter. I can't wait to get my hands dirty again. Thanks for all the links. Coralbelle
Coralbelle, it's good to 'talk' with you again too.* :)* I hope the winter has been kind to you and your family!* There are several horsechestnuts, but since I think you said it planted itself, I'm guessing it's a native.* Those get even larger.* I don't remember you saying how close it was to the sidewalk, but this one is going to need lots of room.
