My neighbour in L'Escala Spain is demanding i pay to have large branches lopped of my trees which overhang his garden, i have told him, if the trees are a nuisance to him he can pay to have them lopped himself. how do i stand regarding Catalan laws on the lopping or cutting down of trees.?? incidentally the trees are just common pines.
Kind regards
