    It was a kind gesture by someone who went to a lot of trouble and expense to place it there. But the NT are a law unto themselves and would want to do this, if at all.
    Not sure tbh if it would have survived in that location. It is so wind swept, hence why only the one famous sycamore was there. No other trees around there.

    I do see your point N , my wife feels exactly the same.

    Moved into the "Plants In the News" subforum with a longer than usual redirect to make sure others see it in the Maples forum.
