They described the alleged perpetrator as a tree surgeon, if he is he made a good job of making it look like an incompetent did it with his eyes shut, in the dark with a bread knife.

I love trees so I wouldn't have thought it was spoiling the view. He knew the tree was there when he bought the property, so why not buy another property with a view of the harbour.

It's amazing the lengths some people will go to to get their own way.
Keep calm and carry on.

It is just plain wrong to do that.

I would prefer the view of the tree.

If ever there was case for planting a row of Leylandii, this is it!

That was one expensive tree! The BBC just reported that both the property owner and the tree surgeon have been found guilty. The property owner has been fined £75,000 AND the Council has obtained an order under the proceeds of crime legislation for £50,000, being the increase in value of the property now that it has an uninterrupted sea view.

If he can afford a house by poole harbour the fine wont harm his bank account much.

Well done by the court though

Perhaps but having to declare a criminal conviction is going to be a PITA for both of them

That's good news, but it's a pity they can' t put the tree back though. :(

They should make him pay for a mature replacement rather than go down the PoC route.

If he retains the view, he'll still have won. I would want to make sure something gets planted there.
