Letter Requesting Neighbour to Trim Overhanging Tree

This letter can be used to draw a neighbour’s attention to a tree which is overhanging your property.

Overgrown trees are a pain, especially when a neighbour refuses to deal with one which is invading your property. Sometimes spoken requests aren’t enough, and you must deliver a sternly-worded letter to the offender demanding that they resolve the situation.

This letter cites the laws which give you the right to request for the tree to be trimmed.

A letter such as this should be used before taking more drastic action such as notifying local authorities or trimming the tree in question yourself.

You can download this letter template here and now, and it’s simple and transparent to fill out. Just enter your details where indicated on the document, and you’ll soon have a letter that will help you to resolve the issue.
