That's good advice for anyone.
Anyway, there was a tree-weed-bush, or a tweedsh, as we affectionately liked to call it, that was growing in front of the building. It must have been growing there for years because it totally mangled the steel fence post, which takes a lot of force, and it was absorbing the fence into it as it grew:
Leatherface, uh, I mean Tom, took his chainsaw to it, and make fairly quick work of it. The roots are so embedded and it's so hardy, that we're definitely going to have to get the stump pulled out before it starts growing again.
Here are some before and after shots:
