I am sensing you have never tried to hold a bag or box over the end of a chipper. It comes out at a bag destroying speed. There is also the small problem of getting the chipper into the garden, if the access is bad enough that you have to handball the branches out you probably won’t be able to get ...

If there is no other exit route I suspect they will bring in a chipper and mulch/ chip all the branches so only the large stuff around 3 inches dia and bigger will need to be carried thru the property. But what then to do with all the chip? I would think boxed or bagged would be the cleanest option...

Ask yourself.....
1. Do I have ivy growing on my side of the fence ?
2. Is it growing up / through the fence ?
3. Would it be prudent to remove ALL of the ivy on my side ? = YES
4. Is that likely to solve your problem ? = YES

I've offered my opinion, it isn't compulsory, the OP can & will choose the best route that suits him. If I were in the OP's position I would ensure that the neighbour is under no illusion that my threats of violence were genuine. The neighbours fear would provide a degree of confidence for me by ens...

Isn't that the way bullies operate?

Yes I believe it is BUT its use isn't restricted only to them and it doesn't preclude others using it when appropriate. It isn't always appropriate but in this case, given the facts so far, I think it probably is.

The world is full of people who are frightened of their own shadow. Others are able to recognise that fear and where appropriate take advantage of it. Many people will shrink away from the most innocent of disagreements in order to avoid confrontation. Sometimes thats the best way to handle issues b...

Its important to read my post a couple of times so that you understand it. I'm NOT suggesting you actually break anyones legs......just make sure that the threat is real and that the neighbour thinks you mean it. Fear is a useful tool when used wisely. You scary horrible man! :( I would set fire to...

I don't see as there is much you can do except talk to the person, appeal to his sense of self preservation and threaten to break both his legs should he even attempt to try the trick again. :shock: Gulp! I'm sure glad I ain't your neighbour with my matches and fires and all. :lol: Its important to...

You are clearly very upset about the fire. We are all different, we certainly have different abilities/ common sense and not everyone can see an accident waiting to happen. But, when I think of some of the stupid, ridiculous and foolhardy things that I have done over the years......usually because I...

Obviously following closely behind his apology should come his offer to pay for replacement of the damaged portion of fence and trimming of the apple tree to remove burnt bits.

Everyone makes mistakes..... I certainly have, many times .....and you know what ? I bet you have to.

If he is felling even just one tree with a trunk diameter greater than 4" a metre from the ground which isn't in a garden then he will need a felling licence to do so.

Looks like I'm in deep doodoo then. 8)

Normally to claim adverse possession the land would have to be fenced and used by your neighbour to the exclusion of all others.

If you bought 3 years ago then I assume the land is registered. Claiming adverse possessiion for registered land is now virtually impossible.
