I wanted to do this since we built our house ... Seven years ago! I have taken daily pictures of the tree for a little over three weeks ... This tree is right in front of our entrance with her spectacular poise. It will get even greener and would look even bigger once her neighbouring male joins her with its foliation. I made a summary of the growth to-date. She is huge, probably aging over a hundred years now :) We have over ten from this same species of which two are estimated to be of 300-400 years old!
