I don't like leylandii, either and would never plant them. But this sort of behaviour is vandalism. Could be those who planted them wanted privacy and knew it was a fast growing hedge.

Whether you like leylandii or not CousinJack, this was someone's property and they now have the annoyance and cost of sorting this out... what a rediculous comment to make!

What about putting the firefighters at unnecessary risk, or keeping them busy when they could be called to genuine house fire accident.

Feel really sorry for the victims, Vandalism or arson are committed by scumbags.
