Mum wanted to get me a tree for my birthday so yesterday we called into a nursery and purchased a deciduous magnolia 'genie'. Feeling just a little bit blessed.

I like that fence @Adge
Get on well with our neighbours but would like that on 4 sides to hide behind.

Mr Darcy filled our neighbours green bin with a pile of weeds that I had accumulated as it is bin collection tomorrow morning.

The last of the noxious trees in our yard have now been removed. Mr Darcy has already filled our green bin post kerbside collection.

This is our gardening thread, would love to hear of your gardening adventures.

What were the noxious trees that you removed (if you know) @Darcy?
Out of interest...
We get lots of Brazilian Pepper trees (Schinus terebinthifolia)(weed) popping up here.

There were perhaps 4 cotoneasters, a couple of privets, 5 smaller trees that were possibly a snake bark maple, an ash that had self seeded about 30cm from a cabbage palm, an ornamental plum that was growing in the power lines. There were also 3 trees and a few non noxious shrubs that had been planted too close to house and pathways.

Wow that sounds like a big job (getting rid of them).
Cotoneasters & Privets I'm very familiar with, from NSW (not so much in WA).
We get a lot of weedy Wattles (acacias) here in WA - from NSW & Vic.
& weedy Eucalypts (Gum trees) from NSW, Vic & Qld.
They're all quite invasive, in natural bushland.
