Neighbours sycamore trees

Posted by Lesley Rothery , May 17,2006,10:27       Forum

At the rear of my propery a neighbour has 4 large sycamore trees. We are in dispute with them regarding the lack of sunlight in my garden. 3 years agree they agreed we could prune the trees but were upset that we pruned them too much and called the Police, the Police advised us that if we were to touch the trees again we could be charged with criminal damage, the neighbours have since had a preservation order put on the trees. My problem now is that the trees are infested with greefly and my child cannot play in the garden and I cannot put my washing out as they are just covered with the greefly. As I cannot touch the trees can you give my any advise as to how I can get rid of the greenfly.
