Grrrr...Can't stand people like my neighbors that want to plant so much crap on such a small lot.

Ok sort of peeved today. I generally am a pretty nice person (no , really I am). And my neighbor is actually a pretty nice person.
But when it comes to landscaping, this guy really needs professional help. What's really irritating me right now is that he unexpectedly chopped off the tree in his front "yard", and now wants to plant 3, yes three, big ass trees in in a pidly 5800+sqft lot.
Forget the fact that the tree they took down belongs to the city and they probably didn't get approval before they did it. Forget they they didn't even get permissions from the HOA or the neighbors that they were going to do it. What's really bugging me is they are planning on probably planting a new palm tree in front toward the side of my house, which will inevitably block part of my view.
Also for some dumbass reason, they decided to buy another tree to plant on the backyard new the corner of the property line . I believe it's a Magnolia. And if I remember correctly, these trees grow big and their roots are really destructive, as one of my previous homes in the bay area had to get new concrete work and foundation work done when one of the roots slipped underneath the slab. Not to mention that if the tree gets big, my fully sun plants are now going to be in complete shade.
You think people would be more considerate that before one does something that intrudes on another neighbor, that at least they would get an approval.
Also, I don't understand why people insist on cramming so much crap onto these newer homes in which the lot size is so damn small. For god sake, it's a tract home with a pidly lot. Get over it.
I guess I could go to the HOA and file a complaint, and go to the city to report the destruction of city property. But, anyone suggest a more tactful resolution. I really don't want to get into a pissing match.
