My neighbor has a 30 foot bottle tree. It showers my front back and side yard with flowers, pods, leaves, and sticks all summer long. I can sweep the drive way and it is recovered quickly. During a strong monsoon storm we can expect it to toss a branch or two, sometimes large branches. This is the worst neighborhood tree there is. I am paying to have it cut down and good ridden.
