Hi, thanks for your enquiry. Provided your neighbour has only cut any branches hanging over his side of the boundary, I'm afraid he has not committed any legal offence. The law is that this act is permitted, provided the neighbour hands back to the owner the cut branches. I admit it would have been a neighbourly act to give you prior notice, but is not a legal requirement. I am sorry this is not the answer you were looking for, but it sets out the legal position. If I have answered your question, I would be grateful if you could rate y answer. Kind Regards Al
Hi, the neighbour is meant to "pass the branches back". If for whatever reason, this is not possible, leaving them in the garden is acceptable I'm afraid. Kind Regards Al
