HALIFAX CO., Va. -
Over two dozen trees have been chopped down and dropped in roadways in Southside, making driving dangerous.
It started happening in the Sutherlin area, which is on the Halifax County and Pittsylvania County line, sometime between Thursday and Friday.
Two accidents associated with cut trees were reported, but the Virginia Department of Transportation had no more details on those incidents.
In addition, more than 200 customers in the Laurel Grove community in Danville lost power overnight after trees were chopped down at seven locations, severing power lines and, at one location, breaking a utility pole.

I really don't have a problem with this and I'll tell you why.
I just spent the last 3+ years living in a house with no trees on my property. But the neighbors had trees.
And there was a HOA and one of the terms was you couldn't have excess leave in the yard. (Excess having a completely arbitrary definition) so I had to rake the leaves every week that weren't mine or get fined by the HOA.
Now, I don't mind raking leaves every once in a while. But I work upwards of 100 hrs a week regularly. So when I do get off I'm generally worn out. And having to worry about whether or not I have excess leaves in my yard is annoying.
So I agree with this in spirit, but some type of defined amount of leaves should be agreed on.
