I hate it when a property is denuded to build a new house - or for any other reason.

One of the best features of our home, at least up until last year, is that no other house was visible from our back yard or from any of our windows. Complete privacy. Last year the guy next door had all the screening of trees, bushes, brambles, and vines, cut down between his house and ours including several black cherry and locust trees. The contractor went over the boundary by 10 or 15 feet, and cut down a bunch of our stuff! Boy, were we mad. We think he was a fool to cut down his own vegetation, but OURS! I'll never know if clearing part of our property was deliberate or not.
