Neighbor(hood) Disputes

The drama's heating up in Kirkwood as a grassroots effort digs in to keep some old trees firmly rooted — thereby stonewalling a new residential development that many neighbors are pulling for — and passions have clearly reached a boiling point. Tensions stem from a proposed development of 11 homes on the site of what some claim are the oldest oak trees in DeKalb County, but keeping the trees means families' hopes of owning new Craftsman houses would be dashed. With a petition circulating and a lawsuit promised if things aren't resolved soon, this is shaping up to be a throwdown for the ages. [Image: Atlanta Progressive News]
