Hi,

Ye you are- the law states that you are entitled to cut any neighbour's branch overhanging the boundary line, provided it is returned to your neighbour (putting them on your neighbour's garden is sufficient) PROVIDED there is no Tree Preservation Order on the tree in question.

I hope this gives you peace of mind.

Kind Regards

Al
