My neighbour planted a laburnum tree just a few feet away from my back door a few years before I moved in. 10 years on, it's such a nuisance. It sheds seeds, pods, leaves and petals all over my patio 12 months of the years. It has reached a height that means I have had to move my satellite dish and it blocks out the sun all morning. I get on well with my neighbour and want to offer to pay to have it trimmed and the canopy lowered, will it harm the tree if I do it in the spring so I can enjoy summer in my garden?
