Tree of Trouble - My9 New Jersey

Tree of Trouble

Posted: Updated:
Jersey City, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

What seems like an easy to solve problem has been made a little more complicated when it comes down to a couple of Jersey City property-homeowners and neighbors.

Jersey City resident William Bailey is in an on-going battle with his neighbor Kathleen Parker over an overbearing tree that is growing on Bailey’s side of the property.

When it comes to property barriers, Parker’s trees are growing out of bounds and are even extending over the dividing fence which is starting to crush Bailey’s brick-made garage.

Bailey has asked her to remove the tree, but says that these neighbors don’t care. “She doesn’t want to cut the tree down” Bailey said.

Initially, Parker declined any word on her trees, however, she said that it’s not so simple and that Bailey had threatened her a couple times. “I don’t feel a neighbor should be attacking you, or jumping out of their van, coming up on to the driveway screaming.” She said.

There are numerous amounts of overgrown trees that are landing its way on to Bailey’s property, one of which allegedly smashed one of Bailey’s pick-up trucks during Hurricane Irene in 2011.

Although the obvious solution would be to cut down the tree, the estimated cost of the tree removal sums up to be $2,500. However, seeing as this tree is a menace to the neighborhood, the cost could round out to be a little more expensive if things are left untreated.
