Gristhorpe Road is a nightmare to walk up. The tree roots push up the pavement and I have had a few nasty falls there over the years. Currently the biggest nuisance though is what drops off the trees - and lime seeds and flowers smother cars parked beneath them. It will take a bit more than a squirt of water to clean this windscreen.
Thanks for looking
Helen

Excellent image of the effects of this urban pest. They do look pretty lining a street but they are such a nuisance.

LOL ! another tip-- do not park under a walnut tree. The nuts are big enough to leave dents!

I love the fact that nature wins every time
Although it might take a long time
Can you imagine us breaking up concrete with our hands....a root gently grows and whammo we get tripped up....

A scene I recognise instantly........I live on a lime tree avenue which I thought was quite beautiful when I first moved into my bungalow a couple of years ago. Even on my drive the car ends up covered but the worst of all is clearing this lot out of the gutters and off the paths SadSadSad
The root problem has recently been solved by resurfacing all the pavement and road so at least walking is not a problem for now.
The biggest problem is that aphids love these trees and cars end up covered in "honey dew" (aphid sh*t) which is a nightmare to clean off windscreens and wasps love this so you end up beating off loads of wasps to get in SadSadSadSad
Sorry Helen but I seem to have turned this comment into a rant...........but you started it by posting the picture WinkWinkWinkWink. I will give it a vote because I feel a lot better now GrinGrin

It happens here with evergreen needles....but think what a sad place the world would be without the trees, and be thankful we have them.

Mmmm, we get that with berries and cherries along our road. They really stick. What with that and the bird droppings my car sometimes looks as if it's wearing camouflage. Grin
