One Mans Revenge Will Make you Smile
Be careful who you upset, you may get a tree in your backyard?
Oddly this story was forwarded to me with the words, "this reminds me of you". Always makes you go, hmmm is that really how I operate?
So as this story goes, a man from California that is an Arborist (tree expert) was told by the city to remove his favorite tree and he was going to pay for it out of his own pocket.
Mayor Steve Aspel of Redondo Beach, California ordered the death certificate for "Clyde" and that is when this letter was sent to the city. Prepared yourself people this guy is evil and brilliant at the same time. The meat of the letter is right here:
Two years and seven months ago, I secretly planted 45 California Redwoods and 82 Giant Sequoias in various parks, yards, and and state properties. Each of their root systems are 30 feet in diameter and deeply embedded in the soil. You may have noticed the trees growing in front of city council, or that new one that sprouted in your backyard. That's a Giant Sequoia.
I mean just writing a nasty e-mail is so 2004, right. Congrats sir, you are my new hero.
