Actor Richard Gere upsets neighbours after felling trees

Hollywood actor Richard Gere has incurred the wrath of his neighbours after felling trees on his property to create a paddock for horses.

Richard Gere, who starred in Pretty Woman with Julia Roberts, has received a tongue-lashing from neighbours at his country farmhouse in New York State after felling the trees.

According to the local newspaper, the film actor felled around 200 trees at his property.

The Westchester house was converted and opened as a bed and breakfast by Gere earlier this year.
