The tree is 1 1.2 metres from the fence and there is a retaining on the other side which we didn't know about at the time. Will the tree wreck the wall and should be cut it down. We're concerned that it may eventually destroy the wall. We've had the tree for approx. 7 years and had two beautiful crops but it does not fruit consistently. We had buds this year but they suddenly disappeared and we had no fruit.
We are prepared to cut the tree down if the roots are going to be intrusive. We thought that it was out of the way of drains etc and didn't realise there was a retaining wall across the block behind us!
