Sorry to hear of this problem.

If the tree has a TPO on it then it cannot be touched without permission.

Whether you or the landlord is reasonable for the tree will depend on the rental agreement that you have with them. You should check out your tenancy agreement to see if you are responsible for the tree.

Can I assist or clarify anything further?
