I do believe they are the same type of tree
- they were both already huge when we moved in 13 years ago. The neighbor who lives in that house was not the original owner, and doesn't really know much about gardening/trees
. He has done nothing to them/for them since we've been here.
I'd just really hate to lose them, because when they built all the houses on our side of the street, they clear-cut the backyards, and none of the original owners planted any trees
so it's all wide open down the backs, but for these 2 trees
