Lynn Sends her little story in. I like it. Neighbours stirring up trouble is not very Aussie in my books. Far better to focus on your own place and making it beautiful.
Thanks for sending me this. It makes me feel quite vindicated. We had 3 huge trees on this property when I bought it last June. They were within damaging distance of the house, and particularly of my bedroom. All had that fungus.
Lake Macquarie council refused my request to have them removed, so I risked it and went ahead anyway. A 'dear' neighbour reported me to the council and the ranger came. The arborist convinced him that they really were a danger, so, fortunately I didn't cop the $4k fine.
The trees were beautiful and I've felt a little guilt for having them removed, but now I just feel so relieved.
