- Big Trees blocking light
We had problems with conifers over growing on height,complaints off neighbours, so the wood choppers cut the tops of them,but that made them grow out, so they blocked the car park,got complaints off neighbours, so got them cut back and that showed lots of dead inner wood, , we then chopped them down, and the neighbours complained we had taken their privacy away.
We pointed out they could palnt replacement trees on their side of the fence, but that seemed to to be to simplistic an idea for them and they never did.
Oh and theyre a very high fire risk, should a barberque cinder accidently come into contact with a dry bit of the tree droppings. ora a watering can full of salt and water to get rid of snails usyually helps the conifers to extinction.Posted 6 years agototalshellSubscriber
neither you nor tha landlord will want a dispute over this ( you both have to notify the new owner/tenant when you sell relet of a property dispute..)
we re on the opposite side of the wall we have a wooded area at the bottom of our garden , last weekend the next but one nieghbours were up one of the trees with a chain saw.. on our property.. removing branches that over hung and /or ‘blocked the sun kight so we cant sunbathe..”
i was happy for them to cut back the stuff that overhhung thier garden ( and chuck it back over the fence..) and to cut out the stuff that blocked the uv from thier sunbeds
we went out for an hour and when we came back two of them were in the garden at the bottom of the lawn chainsaws singing.. ”all right lads was up” ” were just clearing all this out cos its untidy” **** off back to your property and your housing association will be notified in the a.m. ” ” sos didnt know it was somebodies garden….” wont happen again ..Posted 6 years agosc-xcSubscriber
I just cut all mine down. A days work with a chainsaw (enjoyable)… Then paid someone to chip and remove the carnage.
As above, go chop them down and leave them on his garden.. It’s incredible how quickly the garden fills up with tree branches. Let the landlord pay for them to be removed.Posted 6 years ago
I have no idea what totalshell said.
My mate just can’t be arsed doing it himself, which is underlined by a stubborn “why the **** should I go to the trouble then have to explain/defend my actions”.
The burning them down is the most tempting but they’re just too close to the houses for this – have you seen conifers go up?Posted 6 years ago
