Overhanging trees

We have a dispute with a neighbour about overhanging trees encroaching into our land. The trees also block our view. Whilst I understand that there is no god given right about having a view, just wondered if a similar law exists here like in UK where anything overhanging on our side can be cut off.

You can but put the cuttings back on the tree side of your border. Do not cut back beyond your border. Height wise don`t touch.

Its exactly that (in the UK), had this dispute with a neighbour years back, in fact he even called the police ..................by the time they got there it was job done. The neighbour sent me a solicitors letter (after the event), which was slung with the tree cuttings (over his fence). Unless its some "special tree" ie you need local authorities permission, you are entitled to cut it back. I had continuously warned him my intentions but he blanked me, it wasn't about views it was the cr*p that was failing off it in the autumn.
Of course we never spoke again.......................

Re: Overhanging trees

Funny enough my neighbour recently asked if he could cut back a couple of my tree's which were overhanging his drive (no pun intended ) & cut them down a bit too, "no probs" said I He had to come into my garden to gain better access & ended up giving both of them a good trim & he took away all the debris

Had he just chucked the cuttings back over my fence..... the story would have had a Very different ending

Re: Overhanging trees

The OP is talking about Turkey. You canīt assume that what is OK in UK is good advice for Turkey. Just doing something like this can start years of misery if people become offended. If you are intent on doing it without his approval, at least check with police that you are not going to be arrested; you can deal with the feud and hatred in the years to come, but you donīt want to be in court the next day.

Re: Overhanging trees

Why not do it gradually, then the neighbours may not notice and when and if they do, just tell them that the branches died.

Re: Overhanging trees

Being Turkey being legally correct is not always an option as you may get years of hassle over it. I would be nice to the neighbour and go for a slow kill of the tree over time discreetly using something when no one is around.
Google will give you some options.
