Not surprisingly, the grieving family member was shocked by his neighbor’s complaints and also baffled as the apple tree wasn’t even in their yard.

In the post, they explained: “I live in my late grandparents’ house, I’ve spent the last few years modernizing it and adapting it to my style. However, there is one thing I have not touched, and that is the apple tree in the back garden.

“My grandparents planted it the day they moved into the house and it came as a sapling from my grandfather’s family orchard to bring something like this from his family.

“I love the tree and some of my fondest childhood memories are of picking fruit or climbing when I was little.

“New neighbors have recently moved in next door and they keep complaining about the tree being cut down as it casts shadows in their garden where they want to put a hot tub.

“None of the trees are taller than their property, they just unfortunately cut off the light in that one particular area which I apologized for but told them I won’t cut down and suggested they move their hot tub elsewhere in the.” Set up garden than It is a large space.

“I had even planned to try and smooth things over if it bears fruit this year by bringing them a bag of fresh apples.”

The Reddit user said the neighbor’s husband even threatened to hire lawyers.

They added: “I’ll admit this upset me and destroyed any goodwill I had towards them or any desire to smooth things over. I told them to do whatever they wanted, but I warned them I have a camera in my back garden so if they mess with my tree I’ll know.”

The poster said the tree had “sentimental value” but they know it might be silly to get upset about the neighbor’s request.

They asked for the opinions of other Reddit users and over 2,000 people commented.

One said: “This is a piece of your property that you love and cherish. AND they knew the tree was there when they moved in, so clearly it wasn’t a deal-breaker for them.

“You can’t always be a people pleaser. Protect your peace and protect your tree!”

Another added, “They knew it was there when they bought the house.”

A third commented: “I would watch out for these people.

“It takes pushy people to move into a neighborhood and go to the house of someone who’s lived there for years and demand that that person cut down an apple tree that came from a family orchard.”
