Little Metrosideros in the Sunset

Here is what a tree looks like a few years after it’s been badly topped.

It looks like a bit like a shrub on a trunk (right).

Well, we trimmed this poor little tree the best we could. This will be a process of restoration that make take several years (above).
We also planted the tree well with succulents and filled it in with decomposed granite. The bank manager, Rosemarie, was really happy with the outcome. I love planting tree wells.
