Resident Allegedly Hits Neighbor in Face for Trimming his Trees

The following was reported by the Lower Moreland Police Department.

On Sept. 14, the Lower Moreland Police Department received a call from a resident who said his neighbor was verbally and physically harassing him after a dispute over trees on their property line on the 400 block of Lawrence Road.

The resident claims that while trimming trees on his property, his neighbor, Alfred Disandro, 70, of Huntingdon Valley, began to curse at him and eventually poked him with a stick through his fence.

Then, without warning, Disandro poked the handle of a rake or other similar object through the fence, striking the neighbor below the left eye and then on the lower part of his left cheek. Police did observe a slightly raised red mark just below his left eye.

According to the report, the neighbor and Disandro have had issues in the past regarding property lines, and it was discovered that the trees that were trimmed were resting on Disandro’s property, but the neighbor decided to take care of it for him since Disandro refused to keep up with the landscaping work.

Had the same problem with an elderly Lower Moreland resident for 15+ years after I trimmed his bushes that were left to over grow on my property by about 8'. Good job young resident, you have every right to trim whatever is overgrowing onto your property. You should also send him an invoice for your time. If they don't pay it, put a lien on his property. It is not OK to leave your property in Lower Moreland in shambles.

With what landscaping costs you would think the old codger would appreciate the work!

Appreciation is not in the Lower Moreland Vocabulary

"it was discovered that the trees that were trimmed were resting on Disandro’s property." The shrubs were on Disandro's property people! Please read the entire article before commenting. I enjoy the suburban landscaping here in Huntingdon Valley, if you don't like the vegetation-move into the city!
