  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report because the tree is not dangerous and there is no legal right to light in these circumstances. You do however have a legal right to remove vegetation from the tree that is overhanging your property boundary and as such can trim back branches to said boundary which may help. Thank you for reporting this matter.

    State changed to: No further action
