Oak-leaf weed

mattskivaMay 12, 2012

This weed is growing through my fence, in a shrub-like form. The leaves look like oak but with thorns on the ends. Anyone able to identify it?

Probably a holly. It's thoughtless and unfortunate when neighbors plant things that grow into someone else's yard, which is what it looks like happened here from what I can see in this tiny picture. Maybe it just sprung up from seed. You're, of course, entitled to chop off whatever parts are on your side of the fence, but probably not a chore you ever wanted to have. Maybe the neighbors would move it if they did put it there and are made aware of the issue.
