      Thanks for the links - the tree is in line with the satellite signal - but it shows that if I move the dish further along the wall the signal should have a clearer route to the dish - the tree must of grown quite a bit lately because the dish has been in the same position for a number of years without any problems.

      If the tree is growing over your fence, it might be possible to ask your neighbour to trim it back for you.

      It isn't something that I have looked into properly, but if the tree has grown too much, and is blocking you light for example, it may be possible to insist that it is trimmed back, even if it doesn't grow over your fence.

      Do check with a solicitor if the neighbour refuses to do anything, but many would be only too happy to be friendly and cut it back.

      The neighbours are very strange people and so I dont really want to ask them to cut it back. The tree is just in their garden and doesnt overhang into mine.

      You have a legal right to trim anything overhanging into your garden, but sadly not applicable here as tree wholly in her garden. 65 services call to Sky got my dish moved up the wall and signal problems solved, but they had originally only cited it half way up! Satellite dishes can also be sited on chimneys, all for an extra cost of course

      I sawed a big branch off a tree in our dish's line of sight the other day, but it was overhanging a pavement: council land I guess, eek ! (The tree was kinda "wild" as had grown in our alley in the last 8 years).
