Who owns that border please?
Is it shared?
Has the neighbour cut the trees to your side of the border if so?
Who owns that border please? The border is shared.
Is it shared? Yes.
Has the neighbour cut the trees to your side of the border if so? The trees trunks tops have been cut, i.e. the top 2 to 3m of each tree has been cut down, 5 trees in total.
Technically you both own the trees
But if he cut down anything on YOUR side then that is criminal damage
Further he can't cut anything down that would kill the tree
Because he would have to do that he would need your permission
Therefore he did need your permission to cut it down
Technically this is criminal damage
You can report this to the Police.
He could be prosecuted for criminal damage
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thank you Alex, your answer has clarified things. Have a nice evening.
