Thank you for your response which is usefull.
Can you comment please on the other major issue i raised namely the ever increasing loss of sunlight as a result of the ever increasing growth of the trees which start within a meter of my neighbours side of his hedge and which are densely packed together.
I am already pruning back overhanging branches but cannot reach the top 60% of the trees due to their excessive height.
