    The city bylaw is the norm in Ottawa too, but this guy is a little over the top. :D

    Similar crap law here in Austin--If a trees' circumference is over a certain # of inches, you have to apply for a permit. Silly

    I know, if it wasn't for the stupid tree in my none exsistant front lawn, I might be able to have grass or a decent garden. The roots kill everything. I love trees and all, but I think there are other causes that could use city funding more than this one!

    Hell--this even includes old dead ones that are fixin to fall on your house or crush cars on the street--but then again, Austin is spending hundreds of thousands to save a salamander that no one outside of Austin has ever heard of ! :dunno:

    LOL. This always makes me glad that I live in the boondocks. I can cut or plant trees to my heart's content. :)

    We can't even trim them. This causes a lot of undue pain and suffering since I can't see what's happening outside from my bedroom window. :mad:

    Wow, I actually had to so that people could see my address number on my fence. If I didn't it could actually make it so the Fire Department would miss the house if there was a problem. Plus, the horses often trim them for me if I don't get to it on time. I have an electric wire to keep them from the trees but if I don't trim them they can sometimes reach the trees regardless.
