Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Does the tree overhang your property?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes it does
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Ok. You can cut down ANYTHING that overhangs your property without the need to ask for permission as long as it does not kill the tree. So you can cut down anything that is over the boundary line.

Does that help?
