I took matters into my own hands maybe 15 years ago. 2 single tall thin leylandii. When they were on holiday I got over the wall and cut them down. Bit risky.....well, very risky. A rope, a ladder, a saw and a friend. The second tree just missed neighbour's GH. I did enjoy that day.
Determined not to be on the back foot I left a note saying why I cut them. The main reason was it was clear the trees were never going to be cut despite me asking them several times. My argument was they said they would so I assumed they would be fine if I just did it.
neighbour relations were a bit tense for a while
Ah! Good times
