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

If the tree is on Council land, why wont they do anything about it?
You seem to say its on your neighbours land?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The Council response stated that it is perfectly natural for a tree to drop seeds. the tree is not considered dangerous and therefore it is not a nuisance. the tree is in the garden of a tenanted council owned property and is over 80 feet high and was there when the neighbour first moved in.
