Please could you give an idication of the likely costs involved in obtaining a tree condition report. We have large tree subject to TPO. Need some dead branches sorting out but also concerned that one of the two main trunks is growing away from main trunk, is very heavy and overhangs a highway. Worried itmay tear away due to its own weight. Want to get advice / a tree condition report before approaching Tree Officer at council. Many thanks

Thanks, for your incredibly helpful and informative answer. I always intended to get a professional in to do it along with other pruning, was just trying to coordinate it into one visit.

I live in a council house and my neighbours have 4 pine trees of which the closest is right beside the house. Don't know the height but it is as tall as the house roof. It blocks my sunlight into my kitchen which is on that side, blocks the sunlight into my daughter and sons room but also blocks the sunlight into my garden. As you can imagine the house is dull and grim. The summer time you get creepy crawlies coming in through opened windows and its gross.
What can I do? The neighbours when I have mentioned it to them have said they will trim them but personally they need a good cutting and are 2 close to the house.
Id appreciate any feedback.

We live in a terraced house in London and have a huge oak tree at the foot of the garden. The tree is dwarfing ours and my neighbours garden and we want to fell it / cut it down. Is this something that we can do(There is no TPO) simply by getting a tree surgeon in or do we need to get a survey done? Not sure if heave is an issue with felling the tree. Everyones gardens back onto each others. The tree surgeons didnt feel it would be a problem but I need to be sure.

I have a very small front garden, with a 40ft plus pine tree 6 ft from my front door.
This makes my house very dark, and takes up the whole of the front garden. Legally, how high can the council allow this to grow before they cut it back or can get rid of the tree ?
