Residents of the Weston Mill neighborhood in Plymouth, England, said the trees surrounding David Alvand's home are casting shadows over the street and their own houses, the BBC reported Tuesday.

Each of the Leyland cypress trees stands at about 35 feet.

Plymouth City Council officials said they are putting a hold on the complaints while they attempt to resolve the dispute with mediation.

Alvand told the BBC he had "nothing to say" about the dispute.

Neighbor Roger Palfrey, 71, said the trees might pose a structural threat.

"I'm concerned, although they're quite nice to look at and it's a roost for the birds, the rootage system underneath must be phenomenal," he said. "It can't be doing the infrastructure underneath the roads any good."
