Trees overhanging my garden

Reported anonymously at 13:47, Thu 24 September 2015

Hi, I have two trees overhanging my garden which I would like to prune back. My neighbours don’t think they own them and they are outside my boundary fence. Assuming they belong to the council, can you cut them back, please, as they are overhanging my garden and creating a lot of shade? The trees are immediately next to a small side road which is part of Knollys Close. My postcode is OX14 1XN, but you can just see one of the trees on the right-hand side here:,-1.2758226,3a,90y,180h,90t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sveuE9oC60Ye-4nTCSowUgw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 Regards, Jo Spillane 29 Knollys Close, Abingdon, OX14 1XN
