    Droog has given good advice. I would be doing a careful inspection of the silicone in the corners. It often fails after several years resulting in the sort of damage noticed . I've now had several showers resealed with an epoxy joiner rather than silicone and it lasts a lot better.

    I doubt you are fully responsible for the removal cost. I would agree the one tree looks to be pretty much outside your boundary and I would push for a 50/50 cost split. Getting the permission to cut however will be an uphill battle. I had a halfdead one completely on council land and they refused to allow me to remove it until it finally fell over in a storm. Luckily it did lean toward the road. If they are interfering with power lines one way to sidestep it and at least get them pruned...
