Actress Lily Tomlin is reportedly embroiled in a bitter row with her California neighbour who is trying to stop her chopping down the trees surrounding her home.
Her next door neighbour in Sherman Oaks claims the star is scared the trees will fall on her.
Corey Steele tells the National Enquirer, "I had to call the cops to stop her from cutting down every single tree.
"She's already cut down a giant redwood and three eucalyptus trees. And when I ask her why, she said, 'I'm deathly afraid of trees. I'm afraid they'll fall on my head.'"
The battle is now destined to be settled by a third party.
A police spokesperson confirms, "Police officers were called to Lily Tomlin's residence because of a dispute over tree cutting with a neighbour. Both parties agreed to go to arbitration."
