Horrendous invasion of your property and I would venture to guess not only illegal but an infringement of your rights as a citizen, possibly even your constitutional rights! I'd be insensed. There can be no possible defense in a case such as this under the Constitution. Clearly a case of an illiegal, undemocratic, corporate monopoly raping one's life and property. I am so sorry for your loss and it disgusts me that this is how business is done in America these days. I love Mimosa trees too.
The small claims wasn't a bad idea. Wouldn't put back the trees, tho.
Reading your article, very nice, by the way, I was hoping for some larger pictures of the trees in bloom. Maybe you could throw in a follow up, maybe with some new trees from the garden shop, and with some neat pictures.
Summer - I'm so glad to hear your opinion because I thought mine was over the top! Thanks so much.
John L - thanks, I'll see what I can do...
May the fleas of a thousand camels infest the infidels that cut down your blessed Mimosas.
I believe they'll grow back. My landlord wanted to cut down all 'my' mimosas, but after a certain amount of discussion he agreed that if I destroyed the one growing next to the foundation of the house I could leave the others. I had to cut the condemned tree down several years in a row before it gave up the ghost. The others are doing very well. They're hard to kill.
I do find the urge to cut down harmless decorative trees rather odd, but it seems to be in some people's genes.
If they're invasive species we humans should give them a pass as a matter of professional courtesy.
What a bunch of jacka__es!! This is why we need unions. This is why we need regulations. To protect the little guy (or tree) from jerks who have too much power.
I hope your trees grow fast and strong.
We need more trees than we need these jerks.
