Home / News and Insights / Press / Do I have to pay to remove my neighbour’s poplar tree?

Property disputes partner Simon Painter answers a reader’s question regarding the removal of a neighbour’s precarious poplar tree, in an article for The Sunday Times.

Simon Painter comments:

‘Because you have already tried to discuss the issue with your neighbour, you have a few options. You can contact the local council if you think the tree is dangerous. If the council deems the tree to be dangerous, it may request that your neighbour make the tree safe or do so itself using its discretionary powers under the Local Government Miscellaneous Provisions Act 1976.’

Subscribers can access the full article on the The Sunday Times website.
