What if I want my neighbour to remove a tree ?

This is a common problem in suburbs with tightly packed tracts of housing, and trees can often fall on and damage neighbors property. It is much better to help your neighbor pay for tree removal service than to park your expensive car beneath a tree that could cause serious damage if a storm or high wind hits. If major pruning does not alleviate the problem, and if you neighbor is not amenable to a full tree removal, you may have no other choice than to report the tree as a hazard to the council.
