What ho one and all,
Following on from my neighbour leylandii problem, we have a few of these trees as part of the same boundary line, on our property. They are between our respective houses and although not a problem, are too tall.
We are going to have them trimmed down to the eave line or slightly below. One of these trees has almost no growth as it get almost no light so is mainly trunk.
However, it is supporting some 'wild' growth from his side, ivy and wisteria are intertwined in the upper part, that we want to cut.
Since it is our tree and does not have a TPO, cutting is not a problem, but what is the situation with his unkempt growth? Personally, I would just tell him what we will do and if he does not agree, tough luck. Unfortunately, although the tree grows from our property on the boundary, most of the branches and greenery, as well as this 'wild' ivy / wisteria are on his side of the fence.
I don't think the tree guy will have to enter his property to do the work, since it is not too tall, and access is pretty good from my side
