Giant Tree / Hedge in the news

"A dispute has broken out in a Plymouth street over the height of trees surrounding a property. David Alvand, of Weston Mill, has planted about 16 Leyland cypress trees at the front of his house which stand about 35ft (10.6m) tall."

Obviously something of an eccentric, and obsessed with privacy - his entire garden is a solid mass of foliage towering to rooftop height & beyond.

Quite surprising that the council haven't intervened previously?

It is isn't it! :lol:

But I can see why it has grabbed so much attention, the berlin wall or the great wall of china pales in significance against such a monument. :o

My answers are not of a legal nature, only what I consider to be common sense.

Do these trees have big roots. I thought no matter how tall they grew the rootage was small.
I quite like it and would have it if the roots were alright.
Also I would have liked his original wall.
You see there is no accounting for taste.
It's a pity council's get involved with things that don't matter but something serious and they ignore it.

Leylandi dont have big roots !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wonder where that fallacy sprang from

I have seen them 12 ft away and a good 3 inches diameter however Eucalytus roots are far worse IMHE

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... olley.html He could have turned a negative into a positive if he had shaped it into a cup cake. Like that giant pudding, more people would have thought it was cute and brought a smile to faces and the ones who didn't like it might not have been able to get the council to take such action.

It cost a hell of a lot to take this to court, if the council can spend money on these sorts of things, why isn't it being put into better use where it is needed more?
