Plant in my yard, probably pushing 15 years old with about 20 inches of trunk. My wife insists I trim it up, it looks stupid, takes up a lot of valuable space...I keep considering hacking it up and throwing it out, but haven't been able to quite convince myself yet.

One benefit of trimming it up is usefulness as a shade source.
