    Roadside rubbish appears to be increasing. "Ok son we'll take your old ****e into the hills, it is sparsely populated & it is only "scrub". sort of thing. "What we'll do. Ill pull up you & your brother jump out quick & empty the trailer,OK?"


    Unfortunately, it does seem to be Suburbs are encroaching on the Hills with their manicured lawns etc & grabbing land that is still council's.


    I involved them with the bloke over the road encroaching/planting stuff on council land. What did they do? Sent a bloke out to paint new white Road lines.


    Doesn't matter that his growing Hedge was restricting visibility at a T Junction , (my main complaint )

    It does have a GIVE WAY sign but first you have to see oncoming traffic.


    I suppose they didn't want to upset the resident or it was a Mate. Pricks!

    Don't complain to the council. Complain to whoever is in charge of roads in your State
    Cheers, Billy.
    Keeping it simple is complicated.

    Less conspicuous than the thin axe way.

    Thin axe blade. A series of 45* chops around the trunk. While axe head remains in cut still @ 45*, dribble some WWK down the blade. Job done, apparently.


    Never tried it but I can see how it works. Certainly noisier that the plastic bottle.

    A small self- sown Cypress (A bunch of these were growing about 1/2 a mile away to the South so I found later, & can only assume it was a wind blown seed) was growing here well away from the house & next doors Was about 8" high at that time but 30 years on it is massive & you stand there & watch it & I'm sure you can see it growing.


    The Giant Redwood in the USA has nothing on this bastard thing.

    The olde story I'm afraid. One comes from the 'burbs & you don't really take a lot of notice of these things until it is to late. Now it would be a 50 megaton job to get rid.
