So, yesterday afternoon I was startled yet again by the sound of the chainsaw...and lo and behold, look out the front door to see the neighbors across the street having their lovely 40 foot tall white pine removed. They are on a cul-de-sac in the next town over, so my home faces the end of their house, and now I have a perfect view of the side of their giant brick home that looks like an apartment building. Blech <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
I know it's none of my business, and we even have a few trees that need to be removed--one is unhealthy and one is just a junky honey locust that the neighbor lets vines grow in, but it still bugs me when a perfectly good tree bites the dust. It was the only evergreen in the whole neighborhood, and now it's gone.<br><br>
Oh well, right now I'm listening to them grind the stump out. Gone is gone, I guess. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

My neighbor across the street took out two lovely ornamental cherry trees that were at least 20 years old as well as a forsythia bush (tortured by bad pruning, but still) just because he didn't like mowing around them.<br><br>
whatever. I hate his uptight landscaping, he hates my more naturalistic approach.

hey, i am someone with a honey locust being clambered up by wild grape, clematis, & virginia creeper (in my woodland garden.) i resent that! now bradford pears, that's a junk tree (in my ex's new neighborhood, i swear, they removed every tree & planted just those. an entire subdivision of NOTHING but bradford pears. c'mon, tornado...)<br><br>
i'm sorry for your white pine & the hideous view its loss revealed (i'd rather see a brick mcmansion than the full dump truck in my neighbors back yard <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">; funny, that's where i built my chicken coop :LOL. no more dump truck for me!)<br><br>
