This morning I woke to the sound of chainsaws tearing down some of the beautiful trees right outside our dining room window (we live in an apartment). The view outside our dining room was one of the main reasons I loved our apartment when we first moved in! We live on the 3rd floor, so I felt like I was in a treehouse amid all the beautiful branches. I was also looking forward to the fall, when the colors would be fantastic!
But now they’ve cut down 3 huge trees right outside that window, and all I can see now is the ugly roof of the apartments right next to us. Oh, and I can now see right into those apartments’ windows and I bet they can see into ours now too. And they are tearing down more tomorrow.
I am so mad about this, but I don’t think there’s anything to do about it! I guess I just have to watch all day tomorrow while they rip down more of these beautiful trees and watch my beautiful view get ruined. It just makes me so mad and sad at the same time 🙁

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: Haha, I wish that were a good thing, but in this heat more sunlight is not wanted in our house lol
@Moose1209: Yes, we have had some terrible hail this month! Fortunately no tornados in my area here, but that is a good point. I called the office and they said they were cutting trees that were diseased or messing with the building. Perhaps some of them were dying from the hail damage? I don’t know.

@Mrs. Fireworks: yeah willows have demon roots that like to go straight to pipes, unfortunately!
OP, that really sucks! Thanks for the warning too!
Bakerella, I have some cat fur that I can send your way… just sayin’…
