SELINSGROVE, Pa. (AP) — It looks like a little girl Pennsylvania won’t be getting the tree house she wants for her 11th birthday.

The Selinsgrove Zoning Board voted unanimously Thursday night to have J.C. Carlson remove a partially built tree house from his property.

Carlson started building the tree house last month for his daughter’s birthday.

That’s when officials told him he needed a building permit, and the tree house violated the borough’s zoning laws.

Hundreds of students in Samantha Carlson’s school signed a petition in support of keeping the tree house, but the zoning board disagreed.

Carlson and his attorney plan to appeal the decision in Snyder County Court.
