  • I live on st davids drive and the trees behind my house are overgrown. The tree to the side of my property has now overtaken next doors garden (not their tree. Tree is on the path running past their property). Tree is now touching their roof which is ajoined to mine. Squirrels are getting on the roof. I have paid a fortune getting my gutters and downpipes unblocked as next doors gutters drain into my downpipe. They are again blocked and this is caused by the leaves etc off the overgrown trees. One of the trees sheds very small leaves and these are all over the gardens, in the house, in the loft and all over the cars near them.
