the kids and I were home all day, mainly staying in he back of the house.  dh home from the afternoon at the front of the house.  all good, no visitors, nothing.

went out late this afternoon and found trees at the side of our house had 2 branches cut off, clean cut, not broken, and branches left on he ground.  I doubt neighbours would have done it as they would have mentioned their intentions of doing it when I spoke to them yesterday and they didn't affect them at all so no need for them to do it.

also a few trees up there was a small empty milk carton up in the branches.

so WDYT happened?

Someone came along, cut some branches off a tree, threw a milk bottle up another one and left?
Either that or you have a poltergeist.

someone in the neighborhood got a new tree cutting gadget and tried it out on your trees..they were drinking milk while cutting and put the carton in the tree for safe keeping and forgot it when they scarpered hearing you come home

Hmmm I'm going to guess ... A kid went up there to drink milk and someone had to cut branches to get the ladder up to him.

Fun game.

A terminator from the future landed in the driveway (the cut branches were from his electrical ball thing he arrived in), he found some milk, had a drink and chucked the bottle into the tree.

A really smart dog wanted a new stick to fetch and didnt want jagged edges.

I'd blame Justin Bieber.

Isn't he being blamed for cutting lately?

Nah, Zombies don't climbor eat. They can learn to do stuff though. So they could have cut the branches I guess, as some test to show they could do it.

Is that the drop bears cousin? Or not related?

Science experiment with the milk bottles (collecting bugs, precipitation or a musical device).  Trees cut by  neighbours or council.

Years ago in a previous house, DH and I watched out the window as a sweet looking little old lady walked by our picket fence, stopped, whipped a pair of secateurs out her little old lady bag, and ruthlessly cut branches off our shrub and disgustedly threw the branches into our garden. Nothing was overhanging, she had to lean right over the fence to reach them. No milk involved though...
DH and I were hysterical and still laugh about it 10 years later!

I have DD 10 convinced that drop bears are real.....so it could have been a drop bear - they are meat eaters so I would recommend setting some snares.

When DP starts pruning he gets very carried away.  The same thing used to happen to my Dad as well.

My guess is that there was a rogue chap wandering the neighbourhood overcome with a 'pruning mist' .

The milk was from where they tried to lure him back to his secured area.....

Lol previous posters.

Sure neighbours are fine with the trees? Maybe they secretly don't like them. I'd be worried that the carton had poison in it to poison tree. Can you sniff milk carton?

I've seen a lot of random things about Justin Bieber on Facebook lately, actually in one there was a photo of a teenage boy with a chainsaw.

The milk carton could have been there long before the branches were cut, so I think you are looking at two unrelated incidents here.
As for why, who knows, certainly not worth losing sleep over.
