WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) — Zeb Postelwait of Washington state always wanted to build a treehouse for his sons. He got the chance last summer after moving into a Wenatchee home with a big tree in the front yard.

Two months later he received his first notice from the city to tear it down.

The Wenatchee World reports (http://bit.ly/OourOL disagrees.

City officials say he could keep it if he takes out a $1 million insurance policy. But Postelwait says no way.

The city is prepared to seek a court order to remove the treehouse and send Postelwait the bill. He feels the city is harassing him.
