Don’t you believe it.
A close relative of this tree has been working fiendishly for several years now to lever up one of the large concrete slabs that makes up my driveway.
Today its nefarious scheme bore fruit, so to speak. As I was minding my own non-tree-related business, washing down the rear window of the togmobile before sallying forth, this tree’s patsy, the concrete slab raised more than 5cm above the one adjacent, tripped me over!
I swear I heard a sussurative snigger. When I uprighted myself, I knew what had to be done.
Dear reader, I kicked it right in the damn trunk. Exactly where I’m going to drill the holes for the poison.
