My neighbour had the most beautiful, gorgeous, very green and leafy nut-tree growing down the bottom edge of his garden. A few Sundays ago I was woken by the grating sounds of a chainsaw, only to find that he had people in to cut that glorious tree down. I was so sad.
When he moved in a few years ago I thought he was lucky to be moving in to a house with such a lovely established garden. Then it was fuller with lovely shrubs and trees, but he also decided to hack away at them too, although he left the lovely big tree standing. I was pleased to see that he had not taken that lovely tree down then, but as you have read, he chopped it down now.
I cannot understand why people do this. This neighbour of mine is doctor, now surely one would think that he would have a bit more sense than that. In my eye’s, it is surely is a sin.
