Q.Law About Neighbour Chopping Down Tall Garden Screen Overhanging Into Mine

Zone WS42DB | psallen47 added on May 4, 2013 | Answered

This is a well established, mature privacy screen which is planted in my neighbour’s side, but overhangs into my garden and he has chopped it all down leaving an unsightly, hacked mess. I welcomed the privacy and thought that he could not touch the overhang in my garden! Am I right, or did he have the right to chop it all away from my side as well?

What right does a neighbour have to chop down a privacy screen that has been established in his garden, but overhangs into my garden providing a very welcome privacy screen on my side? Can he chop down the overhang on my side?
