310 Rhett Ave Sw Huntsville, Alabama
Neighbor at 312 has a huge overgrowth behind her shed of pokeweed. Pokeweed is a poisonous plant and the berries from her tree are dropping into my yard. Section 27-93 of the city ordinance says 'It shall be unlawful and a nuisance, in violation of this article, for the owner of any real property situated within the corporate limits of the city to allow such real property to become overgrown with tall grass, or with any weed or plant such as jimson, burdock, ragweed, cocklebur or other weed of like kind, or any weed or plant bearing wings or downy seeds, or any weed or plant that is otherwise noxious, dangerous, harmful or poisonous." I started complaining about this issue 2 months ago and it has not been resolved. Every part of the pokeweed plant is poisonous to mammals. I don't want to reach over her fence to remove it because the juice from the plant, which is poisonous, can be dermally absorbed. Birds carry the berries all over the neighborhood. Children are attracted to the berries on the plant and even a few berries can kill a toddler. Why isn't someone acting on this complaint?
