    Neighbors conifers are too big and too near?

    Neighbors conifers are too big and too near? 5th Jan 13 at 3:43 AM
    We had an extension done at the back a few years back and the neighbors conifer roots reached the footings - as a result we had to pay for double the footing (2 meter down instead of 1)

    Our neighbors conifer trees are now really tall (25 ft ish) and within 12 feet of our extension

    mentioned this to them during the summer but they haven't acted yet

    Whats the deal?

    we obviously need the conifers to come down completely to stop the roots growing

    slight complication is that the owner doesn't actually live on the property, which in fact they just rent out (so neither are that fussed about our problem) - the owner actually lives across the road and thats who we spoke to

    Did I hear that the council will take down 'run-away' laylandi for free somewhere?
    When will the "Edit" and "Quote" button get fixed on the mobile web interface?
