Re: Russian Vine in Tree with TPO

CRACKERS wrote:as the tree has a TPO on it should the neighbours maintain the health of the tree by removing the russian vine?
The TPO legislation is there to prevent anyone damaging the tree, it has no provision to make anyone take action to maintain it.

Re: MY tree overhanging branches, neighbor wants to keep.

Treeman you are being too precious. A little white lie that helps you achieve what you want AND maintain good neighbourly relations is OK in my book. A lie is a lie whatever way you choose to describe it. In this case seeing through the lie is as simple as can be. When they find out they have been ...

Re: TPOs - how do we know

They are supposed to serve the paperwork on an array of people

The TPO register is a matter of public record, some LA's have them on line, others you have to ask, you can do that on the phone

Re: common lime tree with a tpo

This tree sheds masses of leaves in winter and can I dump them back on the parishes grass verge or is that being petty as I have had so much trouble with them. Any replies appreciated. Once the leaf has parted company with the tree its part of the property where it comes to rest. Chucking it "from ...

Re: Sometimes it's just nice to do the "neighbourly" thing

Hi all I see a lot of posts on here about neighbours complaining about large trees etc. and just wanted to offer our example. People with problems bring them to this site, trying to gauge the level of those problems by the contents of this site is a bit of a flawed concept. Indeed, they come here l...

Re: What would you do?

Thanks everyone, you've been really helpful. Would it be sensible to get a tree surgeon/consultant in to give us further advice or would you not bother? Currently we're debating proposing to the neighbours that we go halves on cutting it down and getting a new tree in a better location in their gar...

do not forget not only branches of the trees but also roots can be an actionable nuiscance
That is correct but, since nuisance associated with roots is nearly always subsidence related it would be an issue for the OP's landlord
