From The Guardian U.K.:
"As well as completely obscuring the front of Alvand's home, their higher branches overhang his neighbours' roofs, as well as the pavement.
One neighbour said: "That wall took years to sort out. It's been a nightmare. Now the trees are an eyesore – they block out sunlight and make the street look bad.""
This is not the first lawsuit filed against David Alavand, the owner, by his neighbors. A 12-year battle ensued when he erected a 12 ft. cement wall around his house.
