Kópavogur Woman Wins Long-Fought Battle Against Trees

Kópavogur Woman Wins Long-Fought Battle Against Trees

Published February 12, 2013

Kópavogur resident, Þórey Þórðardóttir, has won her case with the Supreme Court in which she fought for her neighbours to cut down two 50-year-old spruce trees, Vísir reports.
Þórey purchased her apartment at Víðihvammi 24 in 2005 and since 2007 has been trying to get her neighbours at number 22 to remove the two trees, which she complained to the courts were throwing major shade on her sundeck. The Supreme Court agreed that a shaded sundeck was far beyond what Þórey should have to endure as a neighbour.
The building at Víðihvammi 22 was built in 1961 and the two recently felled trees were planted shortly thereafter. Its owner did not comment to VÍsir.
* Spruce pictured is not one of two mentioned in this article. It is, presumably, still standing.
