Kye, I agree outside the fence is fair game. I asked a neighbour if I could take mulberries off the branches hanging over the fence on to the street. They cut down the tree. I'd even said if I'd not got a response I wouldn't do it....i even offered to share the jam. It was a famous person....one of the members of ACDC.

A whole lotta mullberries. Having a jam with someone from AC DC. Now that is cool.

(missed this) famous person or not, tell him to p*ss off.

Problems with neighbours , so the guys had a tree growing on their lands, hanging over to another garden or path and refused to share. When neighbours trees pass the limit of garden fences...they become your very own property, branches with or without fruit ... you can cut them down or pick the fruits.

Re: Food foraging around the UK

I usually plant things that go over the fence and allow plants from the neighbor's gardens to inva(h)de "my" space because I think there should be no borders if everyone likes them, very oftn it's a good politic of neighboring manners ........... would you say so shocked  think ...... it works with good neighbors, not the ones that want everything to be square lol

That is really quite shameful... I realise of course they wouldnt want someone hanging around but its quite possible that the person leaving the note didnt know who lived there.

BTW HELLO TWR - How is bubs?

Er.................be very careful doing this, Kye................do this in England & you stand to be taken to court & given a hefty fine for vandalism/theft!!!

The fruit/wood only becomes yours here, if you find it on the ground............you may trim branches overhanging your property with permission, but by law you must return the wood to its owner. The fruit on the tree belongs to its owner whilst it is attached to the tree.

Re: Food foraging around the UK

Just found this article, and translated on Google

If plantations encroach on the neighbor's property, it has the right to require that the branches are cut, and he has the right to cut himself to the boundary between roots. (Article 673)
Attention! Cut the roots themselves may endanger the life of the tree, harm is an act that makes you liable.
