Nov 5 (THAINDIAN NEWS) In a report from the Daily Mail, a man who allowed his Leylandii trees to grow to a height of thirty five feet after twenty years of growing, had finally chopped them down after his neighbors complained about the darkness which they caused.

Sixty six year old David Alvand caused quite a stir in his neighborhood with his huge trees which cut off the sunlight from his and his neighbors’ yards near his semi-detached home. He had refused to cut them for two decades, until dozens of enraged neighbors filed complaints about the trees blocking their view.

The man caved in and hired a gardener to cut down the trees, to six feet tall, pleasing his neighbors. The council has closed the complaint, since the party who filed it is now satisfied.

Anne Brownlow, a neighbor stated, “I hadn’t realised how dark it was in the house until they were gone. We’ve noticed a real difference.I’m absolutely thrilled they’re down. It’s about time too. we just want the wood removed now.”

But Mr Alvand did not wish to comment. His statement from earlier said, “I do not want to talk about this. This is my land and they are my trees.”
