Homeowners stumped – wrong trees cut down Earth Day week

Our tree story is in today’s Forsyth County News. Lessons learned so far when dealing with the County and City – if someone is in your yard and should not be, first call the police. We were at work so we weren’t aware of this, but a neighbor tried to halt the trees being cut by calling the City and County with no immediate response.

If you look at your property schematic, there is a right of way (ROW) marked that the government has rights to that is usually about 20 feet on both sides from the center of the road (our street is 40 feet total). The contractor went outside of the ROW and into our private property. We lost some very old hardwood and pine trees that shaded our yard and house.  It has been heartbreaking. Our saga continues with finding some sort of resolution. Will keep posted.
