I thought you have to give them back or it could be thought of as stealing?

Just to add I like trees, so wouldn't look to remove anything unless essential.

And I've just realised the reason for lots of mozzies in that area is due to the shade under the trees and undersides of the leaves where I thought it was a disease someone has pointed out its more likely to have been mozzies larvea so it's a breeding ground for them. I had 14 bites two days ago from being in that area in late afternoon.

Actually when you say about the trees, I've just realised that in prior years I remember seeing the trees leaves with lots of little bumps on the underside I thought it was a disease but its must be the fly larvee That explains it, its a whole breeding area and I believe shade helps.

I have limited space ... and exactly thats the problem. Why should I not be able to use my own space in my garden, due to a neighbours trees!!! Nothing else grows due to the dry ground, so this would solve it. But I need to get the light in and eliminate dangerous overhanging branches.

Ah i had bird baths down there, but they are hanging around under some huge trees overhanging from a neighbours.

Oh dear, I didnt even think about zika. And I am trying to get pregnant, so this is super dangerous for me. :(

How long does the bite poision stay in your system?

Does anyone know what the legal aspect is? I want to put a greenhouse in that area, but if a branch falls on it or me, what is the situation. Though I'd rather obviously avoid potential incident!!!

If one of these branches fell on my head, I'm sure it'd knock someone out. They are big heavy and high up.

So I just checked over the fence, and on closer inspection the two on the right are one, but split from the base, and the left is one separate but just so close to the others. The centre trunk is 4 span hands in width.

These are monster trees now, the biggest by far in the neighbourhood, that whenever gardeners are in the area I know they will knock on my door to ask if I want their services, as they can see if from the road it's that big.
