Do you have a neighbor whose tree is invading your yard? These invaders can cause more than feuds between neighbors including:
But tree hazards aren’t the only source of concern between neighbors. One 80 year old tree on 2nd Street in South Philadelphia has been the center of a year-long battle that’s gone all the way to City Hall. The neighbor demands the tree be removed so he can build a house on the plot of land next door. On the other hand, the tree owner does not want the tree to be trimmed; citing the high chance the tree won’t survive such a devastating procedure.
“It’s a shame this beautiful tree sparked such a drawn out battle between neighbors” remarked Giroud Tree and Lawn ISA Certified Arborist, Mike Chenail. “Every once in a while we’ll see a case where one or both parties can’t see eye-to-eye on a solution. That’s when things can get messy and a feud can begin. But the best solutions are those where both neighbors come to an agreement on their own. It all starts with a friendly conversation and open ears.”
