Overhanging branches of the tree on my boundary

The tree in front of my property has branches overhanging into the boundary of my property. I am aware that the tree doesn't have a preservation order on so I am allowed to cut these branches. Please confirm.

Thank you for your enquiry. Individual landowners/householders are quite within their common law rights to cut back any overhanging vegetation to the point at which it crosses their boundary. The boundary is usually a feature such as a fence, wall or hedge. Landowners are allowed to cut this back as often as is required without seeking permission. Should the encroaching limb/s be significant in nature, we would very strongly suggest contacting the relevant local authority before carrying out any works.
Many thanks for your enquiry
