Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What is the nature of the interference please?
Hi Alex our neighbour who does not own our border, has ordered trees on that border to be cut down which she says block her view. They have been grown to ensure our privacy. Our windows look directly on to neighbours windows and the trees hide this. I am willing to look for a compromise. But I would like to be armed with the law that prevents just anyone interfering with our border.
Ok, in that case it is criminal damage.
If you own the trees on the border and indeed it is your border it would be criminal damage to cut down the trees, even one bit
I should have added ' without our knowledge or consent'.
Even if it was a shared border and the trees were on the border, then you own the trunk and tree your side of that boundary line
But it is criminal damage.
This should be reported to the Police as it would be criminal damage
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
