It was great camouflage for the brick bungalow, but the neighbours' leafaphobia (morbid fear of any leaf leaning over her fence) meant I was always having to cut it back from the fence. Taking a big branch off last year meant it was one sided and a big branch came down in the wind last weekend.
So I decided to get it chopped.
