Anybody else think monkey puzzles are one of the ugliest trees?

Worm compost

Yes, I have a worm farm.  It is very active, but the amount of compost it produces is small, though it produces lots of worm 'juice.'

That reminds me, frost forecast, I must put it in the greenhouse for the winter.

Nearest Waitrose is 80 miles away.  Won't bother me much.

The product I most usually use for picking up branches is my hands.  The survey was pretty dumb!

The root ball is said to spread to the same circumference as the spread of the branches. 

Poplar and willow are notorious for having roots that go in the drains.  Holly is lovely and stays neat.  Yew is of course traditional in churchyards.

Yes, the owner who is being invaded can cut back to the boundery.  But it is the responsibility of the owner who is invading not to do so.

2 year old fruit tree

If the branches are too heavily laden you have to remove apples to prevent the branches being broken.

Next year if there are apples on your tree, thin them out or the tree will be damaged.

What I would do is tell them you have someone coming to clear your ivy that is out of control.  Then they can have a word with the chap to have their ivy cut if they wish, at their expense.

If it is your ivy on their side, I think the cost is down to you.  Sorry.  As I said before, it is legally trespass.
