The biggest tree is dropping huge branches in our yard just about every time it rains or is windy. One morning we woke up and there were two big ones laying there. Not to mention all the stupid ass walnuts everywhere!
Our grass is an absolute minefield, and the walnuts break down and turn into sharp little pieces so we can't even let Ash walk barefoot. These things are like old wrinkled balls that terrorize us daily.
We have been throwing the nuts back over their fence for years, so I'm absolutely mortified to go over there and talk to them about this problem. Yes, we are very immature. I have actually taken videos of Ashford back here and you can see huge walnuts falling inches from his head. And if you can tell in this photo, there is a dead branch just hanging by a thread.
Now that we have a little guy playing in the yard, we just can't have this happening. I have no idea how much it would cost to have these trees cut down, but I'm sure it will be hundreds. Does anyone have any advice for me? Should I stop being an idiot and just go over there? Drop a to-the-point but nice note in their mailbox? Introduce a walnut-tree killing insect? Find a recipe to use all the dropped nuts?
