Transformation – a marked change in form, nature, or appearance (growth).
Fifteen years ago we bought a sturdy old house which we then renovated and extended. When we started landscaping the garden, we called in the assistance of a tree felling company to cut off the top half of this old peppercorn tree, which the arborist estimated to be between 60 and 80 years old, and approximately 50 ft tall.
This enormous tree reproduces through the small seeds (also known as “pink peppercorns”) shown in the first image. Quite a transformation, I think.
The tree after it received the trimming. New foliage formed a thick and lush green umbrella during the following months and we enjoyed the shade during the hot seasons for many years.
