@ben_hr counterpoint, when the tree sheds it leaves a dangerous sticky mass and every jacaranda planted near a footpath is a recipe for an elderly person falling

@ben_hr indeed, beautiful trees with huge canopy, that shed branches weighing hundreds of kilos without warning. Great, let's put them in urban areas near footpaths and built structures

@ben_hr I had a photo of Brisbane with jacarandas in bloom as my screensaver on the work PC this morning. It almost made me forget how much I hate Windows.
