Which brings up another funny story. Smile | :)

One Christmas back when I lived in San Diego, we were still using live trees, and one year, we put our tree next to the garage, and promptly forgot it was there. One day the following February, the neighbor saw it (by this time it was completely devoid of needles), and called the fire department claiming it was a fire hazard. The fire inspector came by and told us we couldn't keep the tree where it was, and said he'd be back in a few days to make sure it wasn't there any more.

So I planted the tree, right next to the fence, in plain view of the neighbor's window - so they could see it.

The fire inspector came by a few days later as promised, and I met him in the driveway. He asked if we got rid of the tree, and I said, "Not technically, no, but it's not next to the garage any more."

I pointed at it and said, "There it is."

He stood there looking at it for a minute, and said, "Are you watering it?"

I said, "Yep, the mulch is still wet. See?"

He said, "I honestly have never seen anyone do this, but it looks legit to me. How does your neighbor feel about it?"

I shrugged my shoulders, and he left. That's the last I heard about it from a city official. The neighbor wasn't pleased. At all.
