Plastic

I have been living in my current abode for 13 years now (13 and a half, actually), and one thing that brings this home to me is the fact that the trees out the back are considerably taller than they were when I first moved in.

Indeed, one in the garden next door did not exist when I first moved in, but general neglect of that garden by successive tenants mean that it will now be rather hard to remove. I may talk to the tenants downstairs about spending an afternoon out in the garden cutting down as much as possible of said absent neighbours' tree (it abuts the joint wall).

I mention this because the pixies have been getting upset at a piece of white plastic (that kind of plastic that covers a suit when you bring it back from the dry cleaners) has wrapped itself around another of next door's back garden trees -- this one considerably longer-established. The plastic is about 25 feet up and virtually impossible to get at, and it is beginning to annoy me.

When it first got stuck there I assumed that the frequently strong winds would blow it away. But instead what has happened is that it has got increasingly tattered and more firmly wrapped in the branches.

Not sure what to do about it.
