What do you do with a doomed cherry tree?
We have a decision looming. In less than two months we will need to say goodbye to our beloved Prunus Avium. We have exhausted all of the options and sadly it will be impossible to save the cherry tree. We've thought of moving it but because of its size the tree would not be able to withstand the transplant. We considered designing our home around it but we would have ended up with hallways for rooms rather than the open space we were hoping for. So sadly, the end of a fruitful era is in sight and we will be laying to rest a giant.
To appease our guilt and honour a tree that has given delicious berries for several years, we are putting the call out to friends and family for ideas on what to do with the cherry tree.
Share your idea by June 20th and you'll have a chance to win an autographed photo of Brendon's foot in the tree. Oh yah, we know it's what you've always wanted! Only the best suggestions have a chance of winning so send in your plans and shape the future for this special cherry tree.
