Our lot has some amazing trees. Unfortunately, one is smack dab in the middle of the (current and future) driveway. I don't really need more obstacles in the way. I do well enough to keep away from them without added challenges.
The other is a beautiful 110 year old pecan tree. It is about 2' from the current front door and right in the middle of our future family room. I hate to take the tree down but it has totally destroyed the foundation of the current house (which is why we are not adding on to it). We just can't take the risk that it will do the same to our future home.
