That sucks! I’m just like you and live on a 3rd floor apartment with a large tree right outside our window — I would hate to have it torn down! 

Look at the bright side — no pun intended — at least you’ll get more sunlight?!

Uggghhh that sucks! One of our neighbours asked permission to trim THREE branches off our tree last year but the company actually cut off about SEVEN, most of them didn’t even go over the property line. I was furious. My neighbour is severely allergic to cats and I seriously thought about stuffing cat hair into his vents at night, LOL! (I didn’t. I promise.) Jerks. What is it about people that makes them hate trees?! I can understand if they’re diseased or rotting and are at risk of falling, but if they’re perfectly viable healthy trees that’s just not okay.

Sometimes they have to get rid of trees (even if they’re alive and healthy) if they get too big and the roots start to destroy a building’s foundation. My grandma had to cut down the willow tree in her front yard last year and it was so sad — that willow had been around since the house was built in the 50s! But alas, I’d rather her house stay standing than the tree.

I’m not sure where you are in TN but most of the state has been having terrible storms/tornados this year so they may have been concerned about the damage those trees could have caused in a storm.

@Mrs. Fireworks: yeah willows have demon roots that like to go straight to pipes, unfortunately!

OP, that really sucks! Thanks for the warning too! Undecided

Bakerella, I have some cat fur that I can send your way… just sayin’…
