Don't Do This To Your Tree

One to file under "poor planning": this tree and patio heater likely were installed at the same time, so there's no excuse for them to be located so close together--about 2 feet apart, to the obvious detriment of the tree.

Working with a professional garden designer, who knows how big a tree will get (and how much clearance to give furnishings like tables, chairs and heaters), can help you avoid problems like this before your plans ever get off the ground.

Doh! That's just dumb. But it looks like a portable patio heater - or is it fixed?

That's exactly the problem: it is fixed! Maybe I'll start a betting pool on how long till the tree fails.
