Some of the most well-known streets in the world are lined with trees – think The Mall in London, Champs-Élysées in Paris or Yaesu Sakura Street in Tokyo, with its stunning cherry trees – but as anyone who lives in a leafy area will tell you, trees can cause many issues.

Aside from their sheer beauty, there are many benefits to planting trees. They provide shade, offer protection from strong winds and filter water and air to reduce soil erosion and greenhouses gasses. But, they can also block views, damage fences and interfere with power lines. Wayward roots can disrupt pipes, branches can reduce sunlight, leaves can block gutters and windfall fruit can attract rodents.
