In my opinion trees from seeds are much better than containers.
One way we can cheat here in Sacramento is to get your fruit from the farmers market, enjoy the fruit, and plant the seeds / pits.  =)

I posted this before, just jump to 7:00 minutes in (near the end)

Did your neighbor do the spraying or did they contract a truck / helicopter / plane to come out and spray?
If they did it, talk with them, maintaining good relations with the neighbor is important.
If someone (over)sprayed for them, they sometimes have insurance for that, go after them.
