Hello again all. I'm looking forward to re-hashing the back garden this summer with a giant problem hanging over the whole project. How easy is it to get the local council round to fell one hell of a big tree thats on public land? The tree itself is rooted 2ft from my fence however in the spring/summer months the canopy of it extends over the whole of my garden , blocking sunlight,dispensing sap and home to several pigeons.
Would I get away with a DIY job in the middle of the night?
