Ask them to turn the power off while you measure between the tree and the power lines your tape measure. :D :D

Wayleaves are needed where the line carries electricity for other consumers. If the line only provides a supply to the landowner, it won't have a wayleave, because the owner has to provide a route for his own line.

You can threaten to terminate the wayleave if you want to liven things up a bit or get a sensible agreement over the tree height. They might babble on about a compulsory wayleave, but for a 400V line that'll be bluster. Most of these lines run alongside the road and a frequent reason for crossing private property is to reduce costs. Not a good ground for a compulsory wayleave.
