Thank you for the google street view link. Obviously it is on the people's property.
Why the heck should the town cut down some one's tree? Cheap losers got what they deserved.

This is what I am saying. If I had a tree on or near MY property that I felt would fall and possibly kill someone I would have it taken down.
Or of course we can wait til it falls and blame the town. Yeah, let's do that instead.
And by the way it was on MY neighbors property and I paid for it and everyone is still alive and NO damage to my home either. It was cheaper than the deductible. So... whatever.

If you took down a tree that wasn't yours that's what they call "illegal".

The tree belongs to the town. If he took it down they would have sued him.

Considering where it was located, I doubt any tree service would have touched it without a letter from the town okaying it.

No kidding. The one thing I really regret was getting rid of my bus.

And the old beetles! I had three VW's! Any of them would be classics now. When was the last time you saw a Karmen Ghia?

Actually just recently. Man I've always wanted a Karmen Ghia too. There's this guy around the Farmington area that has a Thing. Lucky mofo.
