I didn't know this also went by the name lucky nut tree! My neighbor has one of these that hangs over onto my property. Doesn't feel very lucky! It's a menace. Drops SO MUCH TRASH everywhere! 😩 It DOES look pretty, tho. 😅
I wonder if age, maintenance has anything to do with it 🤔 I trim my hard back at the end of summer, collect seeds as they are ready... I have other trees/ shrubs I would consider as more of a menace! 😂🤣😂
My neighbors' tree is definitely too big to do any of that stuff. I'd say it's about 15 ft tall and at least as wide? It's a big old beast. A few years ago I got up on a ladder and cleared out all the dead branches over my side of the wall. It freshened up the appearance, but didn't help with the litter. 🤷🏻♀️ They're fairly popular in public landscapes here bc the colors are nice and vibrant and they don't get terribly big, and the droppings get cleaned up frequently by landscape crews.
