Because it is such weak wood and prone to dropping limbs on top of cars.

Note these trees are only prohibited in the public right-of-way. You can put one in your back yard, or even front yard if it's not in the ROW.

If we had it to do over again, we'd probably plant something different, but they're nice big trees and provide a lot of shade both in the yard(s) and to the roof.

That's when you may DM a moderator and ask for a fix; I've done it many times for people...

He says the thing has been working like a champ. They keep the thermostat at 70 during the day and 65 at night, and the smart home telemetry show that the backup system has only kicked on for a grand total of about 40 minutes since the start of summer. My guess is that when I have all the windows replaced with smart/nano-glass later this year, the backup system will likely be able to be completely removed because the window system will more effectively regulate temperatures.
Wow, you had a geothermal heat pump installed? These systems are double the cost of a traditional central AC or heat pump set-up. However, in severe climates (very cold or very hot), they ate amazingly efficient. Where is your rental located, metro Denver?
