Advice needed!

Recommended Posts

So I’m doing some work for a bloke that after the tree work is done he will be renovating the property.

Neighbours tree(large Monterey Cypress)

Is overhanging the boundary fence,I’ve been instructed to take all protruding limbs back to boundary fence. I notified the neighbour and he said he did not want his tree cut at all!

Spoke to my client again and he said don’t worry he (neighbour hasn’t a choice and just to carry on!

 

Can I just start or does the neighbour has a say?

Back to boundary as long as there's no statutory protection in place. 

 

Don't forget to ask the owner if he wants his branches back! :D

 

Tell him him to search Lemon V Webb

As above, but you won’t be able to climb the tree without the neighbours permission. MEWP job if it’s a big tree.

And, yes, it will look shite.

 

Your client sounds like a massive bell end.

Why is the client a bell end? If he doesn’t want the branches over his property, fair enough.

If he is a proper awkward geezer he may object to you putting a ladder against it .
