Does branches of the tree over hang his property and conservator?
Does the tree have a TPO on it? If so then yes you will need to seek permission to trim the tree.
Yes you are correct. If the tree, especially an old oak tree would most likely be protected. Council permission would be needed to interfere with it. Either you or they can seek this permission. If granted, either you or they can then carry out the work as approved.
