Can any one enlighten me on this i.e.
Branches that are causing an actual nuisance can be cut back by a third
party to prevent damage would the same apply to roots which may be damaging
a wall and does this exemption also apply in a Conservation Area

Thanks in advance

Mynors would say yes, if the nuisance is not being caused to the tree owner 
(because you can't be a nuisance to yourself). But if you've got a bolshy 
planning department I'd give them the notice anyway just to avoid problems. 
You may 
be right but that doesn't mean that you and your client might not turn grey 
while waiting for the court to decide.....

For what it's worth If my neighbour was proposing to prune my tree to prevent 
a nuisance, I would expect him to undertake the work in a workmanlike manner, 
ie not make a 80110X of it with raggy infection prone wounds all over the 
place.

Bill.
