Firstly if the tree is your neighbours and it is causing damage then you are perfectly in your rights either to remove yourself or ask your neighbour to remove. It is technically a trespass. Equally any of their tree which comes over into your garden is also a trespass and you are entitled in law to lop off any such branches. If there is damage caused you would also have a claim in compensation against him. I am happy to answer any questions but please rate positive. thanks

I would write to him threatening legal action. You can apply to the court for damages for the trespass - that said normally a solicitors letter which would cost about £100 would normally do the trick. Please rate positive
