Will the Tea's survive this winter? I notice snow in Texas...
I heard, that it is exceptionally cold in some parts of the USA.

I think it might send up suckers again from the roots.

It's completely squashed, part of the fence and part of William Lob too.
It was not on own root, but grafted. I have a new-one.A left-over from those I made for other people as a gift.

Apple-, pear- and Plum-tree. Two big Rhododendron bushes are minimized from 2 m to 15 cm.

I'm sorry to hear that. If you have a log fire you'll have plenty of fuel.

It wasn't my tree, but it was from the City. They visited me and will pay a compensation, for the damage.
But it will take quite a few years for P.H.M.R. to regrow!
That part of the fence has to be replaced.
Tomorrow, or after the weekend, a team of workers from the city will come to saw the tree in pieces and to transport it elsewhere, together with the rose and the Hedera helix/arborescens.

How does one value a fully grown 'Paul's Himalayan Musk Rambler'? I really like the arborescent forms of Hedra helix, I'm partial to anything that flowers in November.

It got that big on the tree-stump, so it really buzzed with bees last fall.
2 big Rhododendrons to replace cost a fortune!
It was good, that the tree had no crown, for else the house would have been badly damaged.
At least no other casualties than of the local flora. No person was hurt over here. But in the Netherlands some casualties and two fatalities.

That's bad luck Jay-Jay, But you're doing the right thing, being grateful it wasn't worse, and starting again.

Take a look at my journal for that rose today.
The garden is looking good again:

A friend(female). For the wood-burner.
