Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom
On the park next to my house there are two salix caprea trees that are higher than the roof of my two storey house. They are less than three metres from the side of my property surely these are too close?
Already done this, thanks. I was initially worried because some of the branches are nearly touching the side of the house. Their surveyor told me that unless they touch the house there's nothing to be done (budget restraints). I can chop bits off myself though as long as I don't kill the trees! Wouldn't discuss the roots. It was quite a frustrating conversation but I don't know anything about these trees and wondered if I was worrying for nothing. Does anyone have an idea how much an independant tree report could cost me?
The park was put in at the same time the houses were built as part of the estate.
