This is why I want to own a house or halfplex with a yard I have control over, instead of buying a condominium. Because if I lived in a house or a halfplex where I controlled the yard, I would not come home from work to find that all my trees have suddenly been stolen, with no explanation or warning. Or if I did, at least I could call the police and report a crazy tree thief.
Not that it's the end of the world or anything. But I used to have a huge bay window with a view of an ugly parking lot that was significantly obscured by large trees that were covered with flowers in the spring and that turned pretty colors in the fall. Now I just have a huge bay window with a completely unobscured view of an ugly parking lot and no trees anywhere nearby.
(And although I would have renewed my lease for the coming year anyway, I wonder whether it's mere coincidence that they waited until just after I signed it. I renewed my lease on Friday, and on Monday they chopped down all the trees.)
