At Parklawn Tree Services Ltd, we pride ourselves on giving our customers the best advice possible drawing from our training and experience. We are often asked about matters concerning neighbours trees and / or hedges.
Trees and hedges are one of the most common causes of neighbour disputes. A tree that is one person’s pride and joy can sometimes be a source of worry and frustration to their neighbours. The rights and responsibilities of tree ownership are complex. The owner of land on which a tree is growing is responsible for its safety and maintenance. The best way to resolve problems with trees or hedges growing in adjacent properties is to talk to your neighbours. Try to keep the discussion friendly and come to an amicable agreement. If this fails you may have to resort to arbitration or litigation, both of which could prove costly. The following provides a general overview of some of the most frequently asked questions. Professional legal advice should be sought in complex issues relating to trees and the law.
