I am worried that my neighbour’s tree is dangerous. What should I do?

If a tree growing on someone else’s land causes injury to someone or damage to property then the owner may be liable.

If you think your neighbour’s tree might be dangerous then you should contact an arboricultural consultant for further advice.

It is always best to settle a dispute about trees amicably and it is recommended that you try to resolve the matter by talking to your neighbours first.

If the tree is identified as an immediate danger, and your neighbour has refused to address the problem, then the Council may intervene if formally requested to do so.
