European Aspen 🌳
Our neighbour has this tree in their garden- our houses were built around existing trees on this brown fill site. It is about 6 metres away from the house. The neighbours let a new tree grow unchecked up against our fence which is now 2 metres high. We have found large thick roots in our flower beds which lead throughout the lawn when we try and pull them up. They are continually throwing up new saplings- it is a nightmare. I like the sound of next door‘s tree in the wind, but are our houses compromised? Is there anything we can do? Should we inform the builder/council?
