Kite surfer also got a headline - The Australian's calling him an Idiot, the Brits call him Reckless.....you decide.
I wonder what this resident was thinking......"Love, lets tie the trees to the fence, then when the trees knock it down regardless of whether they are tied up or not, we can claim it on the insurance?"
Surely not a won/win situation, if those trees are coming down, the ties are not going to stop it. If one comes down, it will bring the fence, and the anchor for the rest. And by the way the wind seems to be blowing the branches, its going towards the house if it comes down.
