JASON Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are arguing with neighbours over plans to fell a 25-year-old tree.
The Hollywood star, 54, and Victoria’s Secret model, 34, did not reveal why they want to chop down the cherry blossom.
Mum-of-one Rosie also wants to prune an apple tree, bay tree, as well as magnolia and camellia trees for their £7.5million mansion renovation in Kensington, West London.
One neighbour fumed: “It provides a pleasing view and assists privacy between neighbours.
“I see no reason why a perfectly healthy tree should be removed.
“No explanation has been offered nor a plan communicated as to what is to replace it.”
The tree is protected by a preservation order.
Planning chiefs will decide on the couple’s application next month.
