lime tree

Posted by janet holstein , Jun 24,2005,13:48       Forum

We have a lime tree towering at the side of our garden. About 3 foot from our back garden fence on the side avenue. Now experiening no light in our back garden because of the thick follage. Council will not prune back till end of financial year. What about our right to sunlight. Roots and leaves now growing in our garden flower border. Branches overhand our garden by at least half way. Have we a right to get this tree removed. The council will not listen, can anyone help us. In need of sunshine. from Phil in Flixton manchester.

Ps. They pruned back 5 years ago, now grown back double
