I got some good comments about this on my facebook page...

"I remember this story in the news. It's actually a hedge, not even a tree! The poor neighbours were wrestling to get an order to have the owner at least cut the hedge down a bit because it was blocking all the daylight for the next door neighbours. I mean, if it's taller than the houses...!"

"I remember being in a nursery where the owner had the leylandii at the very front when you entered the nursery. I asked him; are those things still selling? He said they are while rubbing his hands together. They can make a nice hedge if kept in check, but there really is an onus on anyone selling these to explain the possible pit falls. Tree surgery companies have been built on cutting down leylandii!"


"Great improvement ... they should plant a few more!"
