Trees are the source of a conflict between neighbours.

QUESTION:

Our neighbour’s trees, 10 ornamental pear trees (capital or Manchurian, about 11m tall) have been planted about 1.5m from our fence. Our solar panels are affected by the branches and leaves of those trees. Additionally, a number of tall palm trees are also near our fence and the heavy fronds are crossing our fence line. They are a serious hazard as they are dying out, risking to fall at any time, straight on our terrace and heads. On several occasions, we have asked our neighbours to trim the top of these trees, to allow the sun to hit the panels and allow us to get the benefits of our solar system. These trees also don’t allow us to enjoy the right to light and sun through our bedroom windows. We have had no satisfaction from them. We are at a loss to know what we can do to make them do the right thing. Do we have any legal recourse that can force them to lop or trim those trees? What plan of action do you suggest?

ANSWER:

Unfortunately, trees that are a source of pleasure for the owner of the land on which they grow can be a source of irritation for an adjoining landowner.

The best starting point is a discussion with your neighbour, but you have tried that without success.

Usually, the law does not enable you to object to shading from a neighbour’s trees, even if it affects your solar system.

But if branches or palm fronds are hanging across the boundary you are entitled, at your own expense, to cut them back to the boundary, but no further. It would be sensible to inform your neighbour before doing this.

Take care to minimise harm to the tree. The cuttings belong to your neighbour and should be given to them, one hopes by agreement. If palm fronds fall on to your property and cause damage or harm, your neighbour may be liable to compensate you.

You would have to show that the neighbour knew there was a real risk of this happening and failed to take reasonable precautions against this, such as lopping off fronds.

If fronds have already fallen on to your property, there seems to be a real risk of harm being caused. In any event, write to your neighbour (keeping a copy) outlining your concerns, in particular the risk of harm or damage, and point out that you will claim compensation if this happens.

You could explore the possibility of mediation. South Australian Community Legal Centres (visit the website clcsa.org.au) can put you in touch with a mediator who can help.

The Legal Services Commission has a free online publication called “Trees and the Law” that you might find helpful, available on the publications page of their website (lsc.sa.gov.au).

Do you need some ideas to pass the time in the school holidays? We have you covered. 

Want some school holiday programs, groups, events and activities? Check your local council’s website: 

Can’t find anything in your local council? You could try visiting the Art Gallery of South Australia, the South Australian Museum and the Botanic Gardens. You could also try visiting Kids in Adelaide for some ideas. 

If you want to get out and involved with nature, there are many beautiful parks close to Adelaide. Here’s a list of some within an hour’s drive of the CBD: 

  • Shepards Hill Recreation Park is great for a walk or a bike ride. It’s 25 minutes (drive) south of Adelaide CBD.  
  • Hallet Cove Conservation Park has nice boardwalks, rocky cliffs and views of the waves. It’s 35 minutes (drive) south of Adelaide CBD.  
  • Belair National Park has great bike tracks and beautiful bushwalking trails. It’s 20 minutes (drive) south from Adelaide CBD, or you can catch the train to Belair Railway Station. Note: there is a parking fee ($12.00 full price, $9.50 concession) to drive into the national park, however, there is the option to park before the gates and walk-in.  
  • Morialta Conservation Park has beautiful waterfalls, giant rocky cliffs and a range of walks and hikes to do. It’s 25 minutes (drive) east of Adelaide CBD.  
  • Onkaparinga River National Park has a gorge with plenty of swimming holes for the brave and walking for fit people. It’s 45 minutes (drive) south of Adelaide CBD.  

And don’t forget, there are some great playgrounds around, like the Dunstan Adventure Playground and the St. Kilda Adventure Playground 

Happy holidaying!

Breaking up with a partner with no time to find accommodation.

QUESTION:

My partner and I are breaking up as his sister wants to move into the house. We have been together for almost two years and lived together for about 18 months. He bought our farm in his name five months ago. At the same time, his sister packed up her house interstate and travelled to our farm by caravan. She now wants to move in and I am being kicked out at her request. My partner suffers mental health issues, which his sister is exacerbating. I am being told I am kicked out weekly and then told he loves me.

I want to leave but need my savings replenished as I spent them on the farm and food. I carry a lot of the expenses but don’t pay into the mortgage as he won’t allow it. He doesn’t pay for food or expenses so I have paid double.

He said he will have police remove me next week if I am not out. I have been searching for a rental home that will take a dog and two horses as I need to accommodate the animals. It’s only been two weeks since we decided it wasn’t going to work out for us.

Can he have police remove me? Do I have any rights? I just want time to find a rental.

ANSWER:

As with the ending of most relationships, there is a range of emotions including sadness to cope with, while at the same time dealing with the practicalities such as finding a new place to reside.

The panel congratulates you on your clear decision to leave the property. There is no basis for you to be concerned that the police will remove you, this only occurs in cases of domestic violence when the violent party has to leave.

As you have been together for less than two years you do not have any rights to make a claim for financial settlement unless a child has been born of your relationship. The dollar figure involved may not be much to argue about as there is likely to be very little equity in the property since its value is unlikely to have risen much in five months and not much of the loan will have been paid off. Nevertheless, you may be able to negotiate with your partner to see if an acceptable financial agreement can be reached before you leave.

You could estimate all of the expenses that you have covered over the past 18 months, food, household bills etc and suggest that it would reasonable for your partner to give you an amount that would cover the four to six-week bond on a new rental, and the first month’s rent. He will not be under any legal obligation to give you an amount of money but a reasonable person would surely give this consideration.

Have you signed up for the Time for Kids Camp Out? Not sure how to keep yourself busy during the long weekend? 

You’re in luck! We’ve put together a list of our favourite camping activities and boredom busters below… 

Did someone say s’mores? 

S’mores are a camping staple. Who doesn’t love roasting marshmallows by the fire? So simple, but so delicious. Learn how to make s’mores in our Camp Out Guidebook. 

Bird watching 

Here in South Australia, we are lucky to have so much native wildlife. We have an abundance of native bird species here in SA, and one of our favourites things to do is to simply take a breather, sit in silence and watch the skies around us. How many birds can we see? How many birds can we hear? Make a game out of it and between your campmates, compare how many birds you see/hear during your camping trip. The winner gets to choose the playlist on the car ride home! 

Stories by the campfire 

Another classic camping activity. Nothing beats scary (or funny) stories by the campfire. Once the sun sets, go around the circle and take turns telling your best stories.  

Yoga 

 Nothing beats yoga in the outback. Get up early and find a quiet spot to do your best downward dog. You’ll feel refreshed and ready to start your day of adventure. 

These are just some of our favourite activities to do while camping. For a full list of boredom busters and challenges, check out our Camp Out Guidebook.

Have you signed up for the first-ever Time for Kids Camp Out? Unsure where to head on the long weekend? 

South Australia has an array of awesome camping destinations and beautiful landscapes, from the picturesque Yorke Peninsula, to the sun-kissed Flinders Ranges. So, it’s easy to see why it’s hard to choose! 

Luckily for you, we’ve compiled a list of our top spots. These can also be found in our new Guide Book. 

Here are our top spots per region… 

 

Adelaide Hills 

Kuitpo Forest  

Located in the southern Adelaide Hills, Kuitpo Forest has walking trails, creeks, and woodlands to explore and camp in. Chookarloo Campground has 23 sites, surrounded by eucalypts and nothing but the sound of rustling leaves and birdsong. For a more serious hike, trek the Heysen Trail and check out the remote Rocky Creek Campground.

Barossa 

Rocky Paddock Campground  

Among the top 10 campgrounds in Australia, Rocky Paddock is located in Mount Crawford Forest. It provides 30 designated campsites, a hybrid toilet system with disability access, fire pits, and picnic tables. When you get there, get amongst the rocky outcrops and explore nature at this beautiful campground. You can even bring the dog! (Providing it’s on a leash.) 

 

Fleurieu Peninsula 

Deep Creek Conservation Park Campgrounds  

There are five campgrounds available here. Four are accessible by car, and one is a hike-in-only site. There are toilets at each site, some with showers, and all have seasonal campfire facilities. Enjoy the beautiful scenery of the rugged coastline and dense bushland valleys – nature at its absolute best! 

Image credit: John Montesi, Deep Creek Conservation Park, Fleurieu Peninsula.

Eyre Peninsula 

Gawler Ranges National Park  

Offering six campgrounds, Gawler Ranges National Park is a special place. It is steeped in Aboriginal culture and history and brightly coloured wildlife. Catch a glimpse of the Yellow Footed Rock Wallaby or the Superb Fairy-wren, or visit the Organ Pipes or Yandinga Falls. Make sure you take lots of drinking water and supplies as facilities are minimal. Located seven hours out of Adelaide, this diverse terrain is the outback at its best! Note that some parts of the Gawler Ranges are accessible by 4WD only. 

Far North 

Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park  

Located about five hours from Adelaide is the incredible Flinders Ranges. There 10 campgrounds dotted around the park, all with toilet facilities. Explore the spectacular Brachina Gorge, Aroona ruins or the iconic Ikara (Wilpena Pound) that lies in the heart of the park. Or perhaps you’d like to experience the culturally significant ochre and charcoal paintings at Arkaroo Rock. These depict the Adnyamathanha People’s Dreamtime story of the creation of Ikara – amazing! 

Image credit: Tourism Australia, Wilpena Pound Resort – Brachina Gorge, Flinders Ranges & Outback,

Yorke and Mid North  

Stenhouse Bay Campground – Innes National Park  

The beaches of Yorke Peninsula are great for swimming, surfing, fishing, or enjoying a picnic lunch. Located on the south-western tip, around three hours from Adelaide, enjoy spectacular views of the cliffs and sandy beaches, or go for a walk and explore the coastal vegetation. 

Limestone Coast  

Naracoorte Caves  

Who doesn’t like exploring ancient caves? Only 3.5 hours from Adelaide, the camping area has 10 powered sites surrounded by tall shady trees. There is a big, grassed area for the kids to play in, and a tennis court if you feel inclined. Hot showers and toilets with disability access, a free BBQ, and a communal fire pit area are provided. BYO wood, as it’s illegal to gather wood in the park.

Murray and Mallee  

Katarapko  

Situated near Berri, this 9,500-hectare park features a fantastic array of birds, wildlife, and flora.

We celebrate and support all kinds of dads. This includes the granddads, dad figures, stepdads, male mentors and caregivers in our lives. 

We’re here to support all dads through their parenting journey. 

 This Father’s Day, we wanted to shed a light on being a dad in times of adversity. Sometimes being a dad is challenging – and that’s okay.  

 Maybe you’re dealing with unresolved issues from your childhood and feeling triggered. Maybe you’re struggling to juggle work life and home life. Or perhaps you feel unequipped to change dirty nappies and toilet training. Whatever your situation is, it’s important to know that you are not alone; this is completely normal.  

 The best way to overcome hardships as a dad is to be open. Talk to others and talk to your kids, so you can grow together. 

 Remember these tips going forward: 

  • Look after yourself. Express how you feel to friends and family, and seek professional guidance if needed. It’s okay to feel vulnerable, sad or hurt. 
  • Adjust your expectations. You don’t need to be a perfect father. There is no such thing as perfect! Go easy on yourself. 
  • Celebrate your wins. We tend to celebrate the big milestones, but it’s important to celebrate your little wins as a father too.  

 “The way we view ourselves as parents… we judge ourselves a lot, but our kids see us as invincible. We’re our kid’s heroes, even though we have faults, and we feel angry or hopeless or insignificant sometimes.” 

 Brad Sargent, Regional Manager South 

 If you’re feeling overwhelmed or weighed down by the pressures of being a dad, we’ve developed a booklet that aims to help you. 

 Click here to read it. 

 “There’s no perfect parenting. That’s true. You may beat yourself up and say you could do better, but in life there are always things you can do better. Everyone is doing their best. As long as no harm is happening, parents are doing their best.” 

 Martin Manariyo, Family and Relationship Counsellor 

 

Other great resources: 

Support for Fathers provides free information, advice and resources specifically for dads, and a toolkit for professionals who work with fathers and families.

A neighbourly conflict over garden debris.

QUESTION:

We have a large lemon-scented gum tree in our backyard. it is very messy for several months each year. Over the past decade, our neighbours have thrown leaf matter and bark back over the fence.

They have a green bin but choose to cause havoc and throw debris into our backyard. This debris also includes other matter such as large stones. This is a hazard for our lawn-mowing contractor. Is there anything we can do?

ANSWER:

In the panel’s opinion, one of the most important issues with disputes such as this is the ongoing relationship with neighbours. We always encourage people to research the legal situation and to negotiate to reach a solution that satisfies all concerned.

The Legal Services Commission of SA (www.lsc.sa.gov.au) has pamphlets on many issues including “Trees and the Law”, plain language interpretations, and an advice line (phone 1300 366 424).  We encourage you to use this service. In general, your neighbour is entitled to return to you the organic matter that your tree deposits in their yard.

It is then important to talk to your neighbours and negotiate how to proceed. As you may well have the same neighbours for many years, a cordial relationship with them can be very important to the ongoing enjoyment of your property.

A little “give and take” can go a long way to solving such disputes and taking legal action can be quite expensive. If negotiations prove to be difficult, many councils have a mediation service for neighbourhood disputes.

Wondering about contracting herpes from past partners.

QUESTION:

I was in a relationship 15 years ago but never with anyone else until four years ago. My question is, could I have gotten herpes from the partner 15 years ago or the partner four years ago?

ANSWER:

The simple answer is that it could be either partner, and this is for many reasons. Most sexually active Australians carry some form of the herpes simplex virus. There are two types, type 1 and type 2.

Herpes simplex type 2 mainly causes genital herpes, but herpes simplex type 1 is also occasionally found in the genital area. Oral herpes is mainly caused by herpes simplex type 1, but again can occasionally be herpes simplex type 2.

When a person becomes infected they may develop small blisters called vesicles at the inoculation site, but sometimes the initial infection can be asymptomatic and therefore the person may not realise that an infection has occurred.

From the initial infection site, the virus retreats up the infected nerve fibre to lay dormant in the spine in a ganglion, which is a collection of nerve fibres. The virus remains there until it reactivates.

Man things can cause it to reactivate, such as ill-health, stress, trauma to the affected area and often, no apparent reason. Therefore the virus may lay dormant for years.

The only way of checking for the virus is by doing a blood test, to check for the antibody against the herpes simplex virus or by collecting fluid from a blister (when present) and finding the virus.

If the person with the infection does not have symptoms, they may not be aware that they have a herpes infection and therefore not get tested.

Due to this, many people have the virus and may not be aware of the fact they are transmitting it.

There is no cure yet, but your local GP can offer you treatments to suppress any outbreak or prevent outbreaks.

Stigma and embarrassment can be overcome with good information and/or a supportive partner, and by putting the problem in its proper context: as a skin disorder that can appear in the genital area.
