Sounds funny right
But not so funny for the nearby residents who claim that tree’s root is spoiling the region.
The locals seem concerned by the response shown by the man,Mr Alvand, who is not agreeing to chop down the tree.
One resident, who did not want to be named, said he had begun mediation over the trees in July 2000, without success.
“The wall took 15-16 years to sort out,” he said. “It’s been a nightmare. Now the trees are an eyesore – they block out sunlight and make the street look bad.”
Another neighbour added: “I think they’re monstrous. They’ve gone higher than the roof of our houses now. They look horrendous.”
Mr Alvand rejected the claims, saying he was victimised over two decades for the state of his gardens. He declined to comment further.
Plymouth City Council said it was trying to mediate the situation.
