Welcome, Bill.

You must have a hot spot in your garden to get Rhapidophyllum and Syagrus to those heights. Look forward to seeing some pics :D

As requested by certain members asking for photographs of my garden, ive finally managed to get a couple of scans together. I will be uploading better pictures later when i get my digital camera sorted!

This is my first image upload so hopefully it all works..

TBH Bill, you need to start again. Being a builder myself your house could fall down at anytime due to the roots. Because of my serious concern i'm prepared to come down to yours and 2gther we can rip the larger one's out with as much root as poss , get em out asap, put em in me flat bed and furthermore, i'll take them to the dump on me way back home.
Bill there's no time to thank me, just pm me with a day and time and we'll sort it. Plz don't delay............
