Hi I have had two neighbours asking us to cut back our large elderly ceder. It’s canopy and a part of a branch does go over onto their property. Every year we have a tree expert to examine the tree and so far have been given a certificate of good health.
Our tree expert said any substantial work could risk a reaction from the tree which could cause it to start dying or become ill and have advised us to leave it.
The tree has survived two wars. We do not understand why our neighbours want us to take action now. They insist they want to deal with it calmly.
One of our neighbours does not in fact own the house so they are renting.
Does anyone have experience of this kind of problem and know the law. I went on a french site but my french is not good enough to understand legal terminology.
We are anxious too because one of our neighbours is hostile towards us and because of Brexit we have received some unkind remarks! Hope that is not what is behind it all!
Thanks in advance
