Isn't this the council's responsibility? Also we don't have access to the equipment needed to manage a tree of this size. who is responsible for maintenance of the verge, it is not my land. thank you
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
