Well I guess they wanted to plant local species?

The unseen unnamed people who bought the house down the street have been re-landscaping it, and one of the things they did was to plant some plants in a tight row in front of what I assume is a bedroom window, about ten of them and all about two feet apart. So that the spaces between will fill in nice and densely.

With redwood trees. I did quite the double take. Redwood trees?! Under the eaves of the house, no less. Okay, they’re pretty and maybe you guys are new to California but didn’t you at least google the name on all those tags?!

They’ll figure it out in about two years – when the trees hit the roof, and the roots start shifting the foundation.

Oh, dear, oh, dear. I am glad they’re planting trees, but oh, dear.

This could turn into a costly lesson, from what you are all saying. 🙁

They are building a wall, lol.

I remember when my grandmother planted a small tree on the lawn, probably ten feet from the house, and its branches are now endangering the eaves. And it’s nothing like a redwood!
