Joshua :

Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practising lawyer in England with over 10 years experience.

Joshua :

May I clarify please is the tree just a single tree or is more than one tree forming a small hedge of 2 or more trees please?

Joshua :

Is the tree actually planted on the neighbours property and grows out of their land?

Joshua :

Does the tree interfere with light entering through any of your windows and if so have those windows been in place for more than 20 years?
