They put a hole where our tree used to be. Bastards.
There used to be a huge gum tree in the front yard which shaded the house a little and provided a barrier between our windows and those of the high-school over the road. No more wandering around naked in the mornings I guess, dammit.
It'll be much worse in summer with no shade but then we're not planning on being in this place for more than another 3 months. Even so, I don't understand why councils/landlords go in for this clear-felling shit. The tree seemed perfectly healthy and, while it inclined at a jaunty angle, wasn't threatening the houses around it. Just got too big for them I guess.
