I have an acer which is about 9ft high, a lovely tree/shrub with a nice shape. My problem is that it overhangs my neighbour garden. Does anyone know if I can trim it or move it to a more suitable place and if so how can I do it.

Thanks in advance.

    hilary, I'm no tree expert, but I think Acers won't respond well to being moved and not one that size. You can trim/ prune them but I think at only at certain times of the year. I'm sure someone else will answer your thread.

    Does your neighbour mind it overhanging? they might like it.

  • Sorry not to have been on for a while. Thanks for your replies, just as I thought really. My neighbour hasn't said anything, it doesn't shade her garden so I think I will do as you suggest and ask.
