I trim this tree all by myself....



....while Mr. Low Kong was in slumberland and kids playing.
Hubby wanted to chop this tree but i objected. It gives very good shade(almost can serve as 1 horse power airconditioner, u knw?) But only problem it has outgrowned a bit and became messy with leaves and branches hanging low. Gardener would charge me RM50 to trim it. So I taught since got spare time a bit..I trim this tree myself. Pretty easy to yank the branches down as they are quite crunchy and brittle. Since I'm short, i just grab hold of the lowest branch and pull it hard. Then the whole branch would break and fall. Quite enjoyable.and managed to trim it neat enough to please my hubby. Only problem got lots of latex. Some call this the "" (umbrella tree) Payung Tree as it's like an umbrella giving lots of shades.

i forgot to mention the leaves of the umbrella tree ( fallen leaves can hold water n breed mosquitoes.) our lives were blighted by two umbrella trees four storeys high when we were young. huge giant trees n we had to spend money to ask ppl to trim it every few months. it was impossible to chop it down as it would endanger nearby house. it is still there. if it is on yr property, best get rid of it before it is too late.
