Well we've had plenty of time to study.

I was watching the ducks climb out of my pool last night (don't ask) and head to the shade tree. Huge drop in temperature when the trees block the sun. Guess that's why people plant shade trees by their houses. Truefully that needs to be factored in. We've already hit record temps here, 90's and its not even summer. My trees go, my shade goes and my AC runs longer. How long till I can grow a tree that size?

Another thing that I thought about is, when we had the pool built, our driveway is a special aggregate concrete, the trucks carted the heavy stuff in from the road. Not possible with the tree company's equipment. What is it going to do to my driveway and the lateral lines that run across my yard?
