Was looking into the legalities of trees and chopping and apparently as long as you return the wood you can remove overhanging branches, but it's unlikely they will want them back so that's why I do wish to speak to them first.
As for settling yes I found that, which was why I was glad of the extra after all. Managed to top them up and still have a bag left over to fill those side beds. Want to fill them with berry bushes - hence the tree concerns at the back. Gets quite dark.
Everything took a bit of battering in the wind but no snapped stems.
