MAUREEN Bull thought the giant Leylandii blocking her view were bad enough.
But now they have been cut Mrs Bull, of Wherstead Road, Ipswich, claims they have become the bane of her life.
Mrs Bull said she had not seen the sun in her garden for three and a half years.
Finally they were cut down but Mrs Bull believes things have gone from bad to worse.

"They had grown to more than 20ft and were hanging in to people's gardens," she said. "So I was glad that they cut them down – that was until I saw what they had done. Look what we are left with, it is such a mess.
"It is a disgrace, would you want this in your garden?" She said.

The huge trees which spanned the length of most the houses in the row have been cut down and now there are bare branches and dead wood visible.
"I feel we have been left with this ugly, deathly view," she said.
"This has affected me really badly and I have been on anti-depressants. It is just so unfair. You work all your life to get a nice home and then you have something like this – it is just exhausting," she added.
Mrs Bull said her elderly neighbours are also suffering and some have been left with branches and mess from the fallen debris.
"A man who lives just down the road had a stroke about seven years ago and he spends most of his time in the back room. Now the view he has is awful and we all have to clear up the mess from the fallen dead trees."
"The council wrote a letter to say that the trees had been cut in accordance with residents wishes but look at them."
The trees in question belong to Collier and Catchpole.
However no one from the company was available for comment.
