Hello all, My neighbour (who's just a developer who's taking a really long time to build the house next door) took out some mature fir trees and all of the smaller trees along our shared property line almost 4 years ago. I complained and he told me to just deal with it (in less pleasant language). So I spent a small fortune on a few evergreen magnolias for the (now) sunny area along our shared fence-line. They have been growing nicely ever since. Now, he has decided to put in a long row of Swedish aspen along the same fence line which I know will grow extremely quickly and will be disastrous for my magnolias, as the aspen are planted on the west side of the property line (the fence runs north-south). Also, once mature, the aspen will completely shade my swimming pool in the afternoon hours (not to mention my herb garden, tomato garden, etc). This is completely unacceptable, as I invested my entire life-savings to have that pool built just 10 years ago. Do I have any ability to thwart a disaster for my property, or should I just put it up for sale now?
