WILLOW NEXT DOOR
The guy next door has plant what I think is a broad leaved willow( goat willow??) about a metre away from my 150 year old cottage. His is a recently (10yr) new build and it is built on higher(1ft approx )ground than my house. We have a heavy clay soil and I am worried that this tree,which is now nearly as tall as my house in just 3 yrs of its growth, is going to cause serious damage to my house and the foundations. I have voiced my concerns regarding damage and he had little to offer except to cut a couple of branches off which just grew back with vigour.His privacy is very important to him and so now all I see from my bedroom window are the branches of the tree which are nearly touching my window. I am unsure where to go for advice without it costing me a fortune and should I contact my insurance company ,or will this just put my premiums up?
