Is this Leylandii? Should I be worried?
I have this huge beast of a tree that I don't know what to do with. It has a peculiar shape because it is up against the fence and it would be nice to get someone in to cut that wonky side back but I wonder if I should look at having it removed completely. My amateur efforts to identify it suggest it is the dreaded leylandii. It is a good place for birds but nothing grows around it and it is overly large for this setting, I think. Any suggestions on what I should do with it? I'm thinking of creating a little rockery with perhaps some hidden containers directly in front of it so I'm not always looking at bare ground.
