Customer reply replied 3 years ago
A tree from the school play ground has fallen across our yard covering an area of about 15x10m the result of the April 2015 storm.
Question if the section in the school property is removed only can I return the section in our property back over the boundary to the school property?

Good Evening,They have to have the lot removed and pay for any damages that have been suffered on your property. Contact the Department of Education and get it dealt with or the SES. It is not your responsibility and any costs you incur to have it cut and moved you can charge them. I hope this makes sense?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
