My neighbour and I have agreed that the leylandii hedge

Resolved Question:

My neighbour and I have agreed that the leylandii hedge between our properties can be of a height of 2.75 meters. However, my neighbour insists that it is my responsibility to trim his side of the hedge, is this correct?

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Just to be clear, party of the tree goes over to his land?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ii have told the neighbour to cut the overhanging branches back to the boundary if he so wishes. He, however, insists this is for me to do and to clear away the cut foliage.
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.

No it isnt. He has a right to cut them to the boundary, but you dont have to.

He can, but you dont need to, unless it was previously agreed that you would.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
