    Just thought I would start this thread.

    I have a bit of concern regarding palm trees, I have just recieved pictures of our apartment block off a friend that has just got back from Hurghada. When looking at them the Block next to ours has planted Palm trees as they are growing they have reached one of my balconys and might restrict my views.

    What is the laws on cutting them back or down.
    I have put the picture with this thread mine is the bottom balcony (first floor) where the tree is right hand side to back of building.

    Hi J4 - rather inconsiderate isnt it. If it was me I would be give it a haircut everyday! But as you say what are the laws on this?

    Hi Jayne - do you know who has planted them. If part of your development then I would get onto the developer to ask for them to be removed and relocated elsewhere. Or is it another owner that has done this as I dont think this would be allowed in public areas which I assume this area would be?

    After awahee and westmids went out they sent me some pictures and the tree in question is nowhere near my balcony I am ery happy with that.

    So thanks awahee and westmids and Derek for there time in taking some pictures for me.
    Also Thanks philthecar for the wonder full pictures you took for me.

    It is nice to have people that go that extra mile for you on this forum.

    Hi J4,

    Im glad your sorted. Me, awahee and Derek couldnt understand the purpose of the next door build putting up the Palm Trees next to their windows and balconies. It seems more a hindrance then a help for all the people who have bought in the next door Italian Block.

    You want to borrow dereks magnifying glass and set them on fire. lol
