'It looked like my house was going to fall over' from neighbour's dig

On Sept. 27, Wendy Richards returned to her cheerfully-painted old home in Manotick to find an astonishing sight. A man with a chainsaw had cut down 12 trees — all of them mature, some perhaps century-old — tucked in beside the former farmhouse, an 1880s wood frame on Currier Street. "I came home to a mess," she said Monday. "I told him to stop cutting, these are my trees." Little did she know it, but things were about to turn worse.
