Or it is situated in a conservation area
My garden is not in a Conservation Area, but my neighbour's is. The boundary between our properties is the boundary of the Conservation area. A tree just on his side of the boundary has branches which extend substantially into my garden. Do I have the right to cut them back on my side of the boundary (while offering to return the cuttings to him, or dispose of them myself)? There is no TPO on the tree and because of the particular position, there would be no obvious lop-sidedness caused or danger to the tree.

The trees are protected by the conservation area. You will need to notify the Council.
