image for Shock: Man Has Family Tree Removed
A family tree, yesterday.

A Warwickshire man has been left with no history, after council workers cut down and removed his family tree.

The tree, an oak, was positioned in the front garden of his house in a small village, and had stood there since his ancestors moved to the area over 100 years ago.

Council officials had recieved a number of complaints that the branches of his family tree were ever imposing into other people's gardens, after several liasons with members of close neighbours families.

The man, who can not be named for legal reasons, is well known in the area as a bit of a lothario.

"He's always picking up ladies in bars and taking them back to his house," said a local resident, "doesn't matter if they're married or single. The tree just kept getting bigger, with more and more branches every year."

"I'm glad they've chopped it down, it was getting out of hand, you had no idea where it was going to go next" the woman continued.

The wood has been used to make tables.
