That was not at all helpful.

Remember the tree house our neighbors built?

The one right at the edge of their property line… even though they own 20 acres down to the water?

The one I was glad was nestled behind a few trees with leafy camouflage?

Well, there’s my husband cutting down each and every single branch that provided relief from prying little eyes.

    1. Good question. The only explanation he gave was something lame about thinning out small trees to give larger ones more room to grow. So why did he cut the larger tree’s branches? I have no freakin’ idea.

  1. As someone who LOVES cutting back trees and even cutting them down, this post gives me mixed emotions. I like a clear landscape. No, I don’t hate trees, but I didn’t like when we had some that were always brushing against our house, so I got rid of those. Also, one on the left of the house and towering over it was always dropping things on the roof – mostly squirrels who then got into the house. Now those are all gone. I have two great maple trees though that I love, so proof that I don’t blanket hate trees. On the other hand, I don’t like neighbors peering into our yard, which is now an issue since they are selling the house nextdoor and the “flippers” trimmed back all of the brush that was encroached in their yard. So now you can see our garage and back yard from the street. In all it’s trash-filled glory. My son’s collection of piles of tires and old lawnmowers is now visible everytime I go down the street… yay….

  2. I suggest you take up hypnotism so you can hypnotize husband into revealing, not only the real reason he cut down those branches, but why he didn’t discuss it with you first.

    On second thought, the latter may be (going) a midge too far.

    1. They win 20 acres down to the water. Building that treehouse on the property line is beyond bizarre. I know we’re fascinating neighbors but I’m not sure we top a waterfront view.
