Hi, thanks for your question. My name's XXXXX XXXXX I'm going to assist you with it.
Can you first tell me, when you say bamboo, are you referring to a live plant that is growing into your garden or a bamboo fence that is being displaced into your grden?
Thanks very much for that Norma.
Under English law, you are legally entitled to cut back this sort of vegetation, both roots and branches, to the extent that it encroaches upon your land. Although it may sound strange, once you have done this you must return the cut vegetation to your neighbour.
When cutting the bamboo back, just be careful not to exceed the boundary line as this can be deemed trespass on you part (and possibly criminal damage).
However, so long as you only cut back to the boundary line, such action is entirely lawful.
Does that answer your question. If so, please do remember to rate my answer, as this is how the website credits me for my work. Our conversation won't close and please don't hesitate to ask me any follow up questions you have.
