My fiance and I are having a bit of a disagreement. Apparently whoever built this place didn't take into account the fact that trees grow and two huge pine trees are now snuggled right up to either end of our house. Aaron wants to just trim off the branches touching the house because the trees are sturdy and not in danger of toppling. I want to cut them both down because along with being a nuisance in need of frequent trimming, I've been told having them that close is bad for draining water away from the house and just a bad idea in general. Does anyone have any definitive information or at least some ideas on which way to go with this particular problem?
