Well, my neighbours anyway. 8 days ago, I came home from work to be greeted by the sight of one of my neighbours approximately 10 feet up their tree with a chainsaw. It's their tree, completely in their garden except for the branches that hang over into mine, so they can pretty much do what they want with it since it's not protected or anything.

We then had a brief discussion about what I should do, or let them do, in relation to any branches that ended up in my garden as a result and that was it. Apparently it blocks too much light from their kitchen so now I also have a semi-Mediterranean garden as well and will have to see what effect it has on some of the stuff I planted which was quite happy with the amount of shade there was.

Likewise, who knows when the remaining third of a tree is going to get a chainsaw taken to it? He must have started mid-afternoon and then stopped after a couple of hours, which makes little sense to me since the job is only part-done. It's true we've had a couple of wet days since then - chainsaws and water don't really mix well - I'd kind of expected the rest of the massacre would happen sooner rather than later, though to be perfectly honest I'd rather they got up to chainsaw-related shenanigans when I'm out of the house.

I have college work to get finished this weekend, so what's the bet we'll hear the revving of chainsaws at an inconvenient time tomorrow?
