rose put out suckers, neighbor killed them and parent plant
on my property, next to the property line and a solid fence the neighbors put in a few years ago is (was) a 50 year old Austrian briar. The rose on my side of the fence is 12' wide, 25' long x 10'high. I just noticed half of its length has died. The neighbor said it was coming up on her side of the fence, so, she had the suckers sprayed with brush killer. I can understand wanting to get rid of the suckers--those briars are a real pain, but does she have the right to spray and have it kill my parent plant too? She says, because the suckers are on her property, it is okay to do whatever needs to be done to take out "my" plant that is invading her yard. And cutting the suckers back is too much work, spraying is easier. --I feel sick about losing the plant that has been here for so long.
