Neighbour cutting down our trees.

We bought our house three years ago, at the end of our garden we have a path to our allotment and next to my allotment is pigeon man he has 4 huge sheds full of them. He has offered to buy the allotment repeatable till I told him we would never sell it. We are turning it into a garden, play area and fruit orchard.

Last year we planted three fruit trees, he was saying we couldn't plant trees because his pigeons would go in them, I told him we would be planting the trees he started shouting and swearing at me in front of the DC (2,5 and 7 at the time)! So I changed the layout and planted two trees closer to his side (3 meters) because the play area was going to be that end so moved the orchard to his end.

We went down yesterday evening to mow it and trim the hedge. Fruit trees are fine but his been in and cut down three saplings​

And now I'm worried his going to cut down the trees I'll be planting this year. His about 80 years old when he started swearing front of the DC I told him to go away and wave is in peace then he sent his son around who shouted at me for speaking to his father in a disrespectful way grin.

DH said we should have a rave down there would anyone want to join us

You planted the trees in the allotment?

If he cut down your trees it's criminal damage.

Has he admitted he did it? If so or you have proof it's him, you could call 101 and have them have a word with him, just so he's warned off from doing any more damage. It sounds like it needs dealing with calmly as it's the kind of situation that can really spiral.

Are you sure they were cut down and not eaten by deer or something. How about an obvious CCTV camera (fake if need be)

Does he have family you could talk to?

MimsyFluff Wed 29-Mar-17 11:19:01

No proof otherwise I'd of called yesterday. He told us about the trees popping up last year (there silver birch) and have been cut of so no animals have eaten them. His family are just as bad my neighbours told me when we moved in the be careful with him angry

Will be popping fake CCTV that's a good idea. He will go crazy when I plant more trees so will report him then

I love the diagram and want to know more about the alien neighbour...

⭐️ for your diagram (might be the best I've seen on MN!)

(I am especially intrigued by alien obsessed neighbour)

Lovely diagram. Unusual set up with the allotment area being detached from your house.

PuppyMonkey Wed 29-Mar-17 11:26:27

I like the added detail of "nice neighbours" on your diagram. Thanks.

"he was saying we couldn't plant trees because his pigeons would go in them,"

Is it a huge problems for pigeon keepers when their pigeons go in trees? confused

BiddyPop Wed 29-Mar-17 11:28:29

I like the fact that you have mostly nice neighbours other than pigeon man - EXCEPT the one who thinks aliens visit the area!

Hmm, I wonder would the aliens have cut down the trees......grin

LazySusan11 Wed 29-Mar-17 11:32:09

Nothing to add of any worth but I love your diagram, we need more info on paranoid alien neighbour!

Yes agree with everyone else, great diagram but we need MUCH more info about alien spotting neighbour grin

AwkwardSquad Wed 29-Mar-17 11:33:55

No advice, but top marks for the diagramme grin

Alien neighbour is lovely friend in his special way.

Last year i was sitting in the garden with my DM next door are away am his feeding their Dcat. I notice his all bandaged up, ask if his okay, he tells me all about his car accident that morning and all the drugs they've given him. Then he starts going on about apiens, if i see flashing lights it's ok it's just the aliens but to always watch the kids if they are playing outside, told me all about the real videos online and that they love to come in winter.

I thought fuck he must be really high, told DH about it when he got home he said he'd been waiting for me to find out and was pissing himself with laughter angry I chat to him now to find out the latest news wink

blueskyinmarch Wed 29-Mar-17 11:35:15

I have no advice about pigeon man but I too want more on the alien obsessed neighbour. Good diagram btw!

SapphireStrange Wed 29-Mar-17 11:37:47

Right, I want a series of short vignettes/a script to go on Radio 4/a series of columns/an anthology TV series a la Inside Number 9 about all your allotment neighbours.

MimsyFluff Wed 29-Mar-17 11:38:18

blush I'm terrible at drawing that's as good as it gets

xStefx Wed 29-Mar-17 11:38:30

Yes I would like to know more about Alien man too OP?

Yes I think fake CCTV would be a good idea to stop him chopping down your trees

MimsyFluff Wed 29-Mar-17 11:39:59

I would over to write columns about him and alien neighbour but I'm dyslexic maybe DH would help smile
