Thanks for your enquiry.
Do you know if the tree in question is subject to a Tree Preservation Order or is in a Conservation area?
I look forward to hearing from you.
I can assist you further.
You will need to contact the council to see if the trees are protected by a tpo (tree preservation order).
Contact the planning or land charges department.
If there is a tpo you cannot touch them.
If there is no tpo then you can trim back the overhanging branches but only to your boundary and not beyond. Please note that the branches which you trim belong to the land owner and you should return them to the land owner.
I hope this helps. Please come back to me if you have any questions.

You need to check if the trees are covered by a tpo. The council has this information. It is available to the public.
