Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Woodland next to my field with a big poplar tree, tree blew down in my field in resent gales.

Expert:  Remus2004 replied 4 years ago.

If you mean, can you chop the tree for logs then the answer is that you cannot.

The tree still belongs to the neighbour but you can go to court for an injunction to make him remove it and also sue him for any damage.

Is that all you wanted to know?
