Pruning back, or cutting back, usually refers to the removal of only one side of a tree or a specific lateral branch for a given purpose. This can be due to overhanging branches from your trees or your neighbours’ trees, which are touching or damaging property, obstructing the highway or just causing a general nuisance.
At Connick Tree Care, our consultants will provide you with a clear and defined specification of pruning back. With our knowledge and years of experience, we are able to make all necessary arrangements for such works. So whether we’re working on the public highway or on your neighbour’s favourite tree, we will ensure all parties are happy with the outcome.
Legally, you are within your right to cut back tree branches that overhang into you property from a neighbouring property. The law states that the branches belong to the person on whose land the tree originally grew so you should always ask your neighbour if they want them back, or if they’re happy for you to dispose of them.
